There is no mention of a gildhall in any of the Pevsner editions. However, Historic England has a listing for Guildhall Cottages that back on to the church of St Mary the Virgin. Whilst the pair of cottages are c1700, it says "most components are reused and re-cut from a C16 (or possibly C15) building on this site with heavy framing; of this building White's Directory 1855 states:- 'The guildhall (now the school house) was settled in the 15th Ed IV (1476) for the benefit of the parishioners." So we likely have here a building on the site of, and using components from, a former gildhall.

Thanks to the late Patrick Taylor for pointing me in the right direction on this one.
