Through the keyhole
After the Second World War, the house was owned by the actor Sir John Mills
And then later by Roger Hargreaves, who wrote some of his Mr Men and Little Miss books there in the 1970s and 1980s.
The house is steeped in history with the original two-and-a-half-storey timber-framed house dating back to 1580
