The Manor is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but there has been a settlement on the site since Anglo-Saxon times and probably long before that. The Manor and its surrounding farm buildings are Grade II listed, with the earliest surviving part of the manor house dating from the late 15th century, with major additions in 1602 and the farm buildings from the 1850s.
Working with Architects Hoare Ridge & Morris; Valley Builders were contracted by The Trustees to undertake extensive refurbishment and extension works.
External works consisted of substantial repairs to the roof structure, total re-roofing including swept valleys & the addition of insulation where possible; new cast iron rainwater goods; exterior ashlar repairs to walls and chimney stacks; repairs to stone window surrounds and new bronze frames with lead squares; take down and rebuild of central Southeast wall of the Great Hall, with re-ordered fenestration, new oak doorway and stone oeil-de-boeuf window;
Internal alterations comprised re-ordering to the Great Hall with new panelling and fireplace, underfloor heating and oak flooring, substantial re-wiring and re-plumbing to other areas of the house, bespoke joinery wardrobes, bookcases, bathroom furniture and complete decoration works.
The clients remained in occupation of the other parts of the house throughout the works so we provided a temporary roof to the entire house during the re-roofing and stone repair works.
