Pictures of buildings mentioned in the second edition “Suffolk” volume of “The Buildings of England” series by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner.

The entry for Otley includes the church, Otley Hall, High House and a barrow.

Of Otley Hall Pevsner says: "One of the most interesting C15 and early C16 houses in Suffolk. What is preserved of specially remarkable features is the four-centred entrance arch with the initials of Robert Gosnold for whom it was built (perhaps not in situ), the hall screen with with two four-centred arches, the heavily moulded beams and joists of the hall ceiling and its large eight-light window, and the parlour with its eight-light window and most beautiful and complete early C16 linenfold panelling. In addition a Jacobean wing with a simple staircase, some decoration with painting, and a frieze of pargetting outside". Some views follow:
