Manor House, Hamstall Ridware - Lichfield

Porch, walls and gatehouse to timber framed C15 country house, substantially altered in C16 and C18 with brick hall, tower and courtyard walls. The tower remains as a prominent garden folly with considerable structural issues. The house is still in use, but the tower is derelict and in very bad condition. Vegetation was cleared from the tower and a detailed recording survey has been completed. Further structural assessment of the site is needed.
