The bare, raised patch at the back are the ruins of the house - the former presbytery for the priests serving Standish Hall Chapel and St Marie's RC Church.

I always think this place would be a good places to go and dig up old bottles if you knew where they had there dump.

Last year I picked up two old broken roof slates from there, which are now used by the frogs as hopping in and out point in our fish pond
