M Nigra growing near sunken garden in old Tudor mansion (Cedar House). North of the church, it is a gabled brick building of the late 16th century with 18th-century alterations. It stands in a walled garden at the junction of Uxbridge Road and Vine Lane and is entered from the south by an 18th-century wrought-iron gate flanked by rusticated brick piers. Samuel Reynardson, the eminent botanist, lived there from about 1678 until his death in 1721; he is said to have planted the cedar tree after which the house is named.
