Notes about this historic site

1 Ashorne was originally part of the manor of Newbold, but was a separate submanor from the 12th century. It passed through various hands, belonging at the Dissolution to the chantry of Guy’s Cliff, but was sold to the Earls of Warwick in 1789. There was a house on the Ashorne Hill site before the redevelopments of the late 19th century (see WA 8411) and it is believed that this was at one time the manor house. Part of the fabric of the earlier house is incorporated into the 19th century building.
