Crutch Farm stands near the site of the ancient manor-house. All trace of this manor-house has now disappeared; it is said to have stood on the top of some rising ground immediately to the southwest of the present building and adjoining the road known as Crutch Lane. A considerable indentation of the ground by the roadside may indicate a moat, though no return line can now be distinguished, and it may be the remains of a marl-pit. The farm-house is apparently a building of the late 17th century, though much modernized. The materials are red brick, with a tiled roof.
