3 The east wing of the Manor House may have housed a brewhouse at one time. The stones from the demolished Newnham Hall (in 1776) were used for making a malt house among other things and a plan in the CRO of George Worth’s House (probably the manor) marks a brewhouse on it. The house appears in excellent condition.
