Full Description

Anthony Feilding sold Mr Grey, of Langley, the house and ten yard land heretofore belonging to Repton Priory… Near this church (St Ann's) are some ruins with no marked features describable. (1)
The prior at Repton had at Sutton Bonington a Grange Farm … known as Repingdon Grange, but called locally "Hobgoblins". A print and description of 1811 - "The entrance is under a lofty pointed arch, over which is a row of blank shields suspended from a moulded cornice by a foliage of rich workmanship; on both sides are buttresses and windows now stopped up. The interior is without decoration and is now used as a barn." This building as shown on the print abutted on the road, but has now (1925) entirely gone, except that there are remains of the walls, quantities of stones and an ivy-clad arch. (2)
See M10469 for wall and archway, M12355 for later farmhouse.
