A house which some believe to be the oldest in the vicarage, and where tradition says that Robin Hood some time resided; but no other marks of its antiquity appeared in Watson's time, than that the north part of it was studded after the manner of building in former times. It might take its name from the Latin word Callis, which meant a path made by wild beasts in forests and mountains.[1]

IRHB comments

John Crabtree's book is a somewhat condensed and modernized paraphrase of Watson, a sad example of plagiarism.
