Site of Medieval Manor House at Oversley Court
The possible site Oversley Court, a Medieval manor house which replaced Oversley Castle. Cropmarks in this area may relate to the manor house which was situated 1km north west of Oversley Castle.
1 Till quite recently a building stood near a pool a little to the E of the castle site, known as Oversley Court, and it would seem probable that this was all that remained, or was on the site of what had been a C13 or C14 stone building, which had taken the place of the castle. Information on the history of the manor exists for the period C11-16.
2 Various crop marks in the area to the E and SE of Oversley Castle could be associated with the possible manor house.
3 Scheduled as Warwickshire Monument No 74.
4 E of the castle are comparatively late garden terraces.
5 Finds on the site include a C14 belt mount and a C15 lead badge.
