The Manor House. Sixteen photos of the Manor House (interior and exterior) July 1999. Photographs taken by David Harverson.

The present building is late 16th century and, after the manorial rights were extinguished, it was let by successive well-to-do owners. In 1851, it had been intended to establish a training school for teachers here, but this project was abandoned. In 1864 the new owner divided it into four cottages and it stayed like this until 1925. But restoration did not take place until Mrs Hassall bought the house in 1939.
