7/31 The Manor House
House. Late C16 timber frame, with C17 and C18 alterations, and minor C20 changes.
Walls of brickwork in English bond, high plinth, chamfered reveals to the window
openings, 1st and 2nd floor drip-moulds: some Flemish bond with blue headers,
stone cill and coping to parapet. Tile roof, with prominent gables, hips to
rear extensions: massive rectangular stacks with separate triple diagonal flues.
A building of several phases, basically L-shaped with lower extensions within the
angle; symmetrical Jacobean west front elevation of two gables separated by a
parapet, two storeys and attic three windows. Casements and triple sashes.
C20 traditional brick porch, with gable, fanlight, and coupled doors. The north
elevation has a central gable between large stacks (the east side cut down and
gabled), with ground-floor service wings projecting at each side: small casements
and one large sash. The other elevations are irregular, with C18 sashes and a
two-storeyed south bay (c1900) with mullion and transom windows. Inside,
the framework is exposed in the upper floor, and there are sections of C17 oak
panelling: the main staircase is late Georgian, but older staircase details re-
main in the upper part at the rear.
