These 13th century ruins stand immediately to the south of the church in Crowhurst. The house was built by the Steward of one of the Norman barons. Walter de Scotney, who built the house, was tried at Winchester and executed for poisoning an earl and his brother.
Here is the Early English (about 1250) window opening in more detail.
This is the ruins as seen through the trees from the church yard.
There are images of St George's Church, Crowhurst in my Church Album.
