Little Myles Farm. Farmhouse from 1500, with subsequent alterations. Timber-framed and rendered. This was however a small farm which expanded greatly in the early 18th. It has a three acre garden surrounded by wild flowers and grasses plus ponds, a pergola, a stream. This is an herb garden used for handmade cosmetics.

Great Myles. This was a sub manor in Kelvedon and the name came an owner, Miles de Munteny. The house was rebuilt in the 18th – it was red brick and it was said to have a window for each day of the year. It was burnt down and demolished in 1837, and all that remains is the stable block, servants’ wing and outbuildings. The Stable block is in 18th brick with an octagonal wooden lantern with an octagonal clock face. It could take 22 horses and a flat on the first floor.
