Notes about this historic site

1 A depression and bank in an orchard to the south of the moat could be the site of a manorial complex of buildings. The Hall itself may stand on the site of previous outbuildings of the Medieval manor. Beyond the Hall are further depressions representing the remains of buildings; one is marked on a map of 1754.
2 Admington court rolls reveal details about the Medieval manor house, which was provided with a byre, piggery, sheepcote, and barn. These are recorded because in the 15th century they were leased out to farmers and there were various interventions by the lord to ensure they were kept in good repair.
