Footings and foundations of a fortified manor house. Sandstone with 6 towers
and a deep moat. These works date from 1264 when Roger de Somery was licensed
to crenellate his manor house. A survey of 1422 gives a detailed plan. Fragments
of early C13 wooden buildings have been discovered, indicating early use of
both horizontal and vertical weatherboarding.
