Combe House is in the churchyard of St Thomas the Martyr. Built as a school. The inscription provides the date 1702. The windows are still mullioned, but typical of the last stage, i.e. of two lights, upright not horizontal in shape, with raised bands instead of mouldings and attached to a horizontal band running all along the facade of the little building ... Doorway with steep pediment.
