Notes about this historic site

1 The Manor House, to the north of the church, was built about the middle of the 16th century. It is a close-framed timber structure of two stories on a red sandstone splayed plinth, the main front to the south, originally L-shaped, with a west wing added at the beginning of the 17th century.
2 Nos 1-2 Manor Farmhouse are of 16th century origin but the cellar is reputedly older than the house (possibly 13th century). The house is timber framed on a sandstone plinth.
3 Manor Farmhouse, black and white, with closely spaced studs, and three symmetrical gables, the outer two with diagonal struts.
4 Circa mid 16th century L-shaped house with cross wing to the east, to which a west wing was added in the early 17th century, forming a U-shaped plan. Steeply pitched plain tile roofs with gabled ends. Two storeys. The early portion is of close studded timber framing with painted render infill panels. Contemporary oak panelling survives in lounges to both parts of manor. There is some medieval wallpainting in lounge No 2. In front of the house is a low sandstone ashlar boundary wall with gate piers with ball finials.
