Notes about this historic site

1 Thomas Fisher depopulated the Medieval village (PRN 632) and pulled down the church to build a large manor house. In 1730 this manor house had been abandoned and converted into two of the six dwellings that then existed at Lower Itchington (PRN 6182).
2 The mother church was ‘quite demolished’ in 1649.
3 The existing farmhouse contains remains of the manor house and also remains of the earlier church. These were revealed during recent removal of plaster.
4 Photographed in 1985.
