The house was built in the mid-17th century and was originally on a 'T' plan, with the alterations of c1905 adding a wing to the north, seen here as the range to the left of the large original three-storey gable. The photograph was taken by a Mr C B Willcocks of the architectural firm Willcocks and Greenaway, and it is part of a series of images of the manor house. It is likely therefore, that Willcocks & Greenaway were the architects behind the Cavendish family's alterations to the house.
