JR - as far as I know it was on the site of what is now the car park of the White Lion pub opposite the Church gates. I've seen an old photograph (can't remember where) of the old building being demolished. It was exactly adjacent to the pub. The rumour was that George Lyon haunted the house and when it was demolished the haunting transferred to the pub. Seems eminently sensible to me!
