Notes about this historic site

1 Birdingbury Manor, also known as Birdingbury Hall, is described by Pevsner as a “large symmetrical essentially neo-Jacobean mansion”, but he fails to date it more precisely.
2 The 1962 sale catalogue (CRO EAC 132) describes it as part 16th century.
3 A site visit revealed that the manor survives largely in its original condition, except for minor features such as the porch. Some more significant differences were noted from the sketch of 1859. It is assumed this was due to artistic licence as the hall was obviously not destroyed by fire as the caption claims. The hall is now a convention centre.
4 Only the stable block is listed, being an 18th century 2 storey, brick building with stone quoins and a hipped old tile roof. They are now used as domestic and garage buildings.
5 Drawing.
