Site of Possible Manor House 100m SE of Church

Description of this historic site

The site of a possible manor house dating to the Post Medieval period which survives as an earthwork. The Ladbroke map of 1638 marks the site as a 'Farm Yard' with a farm house. It is situated 100m south east of the church, Ladbroke.

Notes about this historic site

1 Grass field between the church and stream is very uneven. Mounds indicate one large house and a number of smaller ones. On the Ladbroke map of 1638 the field is named as ‘Farm Yard’ and a farmhouse occupied by William Loe is marked. The large mound is almost certainly the remains of William Loe’s house. The desertion was probably between 1639 and 1700.
