Manor House and adjacent ruins

(Formerly listed as: Old Manor House and adjacent ruins) (Formerly listed as Mitford Manor House) II* GV

Manor house. Probably C16, remodelled C17 with addition of porch tower, dated 1637, and rear wings; kitchen wing remodelled 1961-2. Large rubble with cut dressings; pantile roof on kitchen wing. Main block with central porch tower on east and twin wings with small outshut between on west.

Porch tower 3 storeys. Plinth. 3 steps up to round arch with imposts and keystone, under ornate entablature with worn armorial panel, strapwork and finials. String courses stepped over 3-light transomed windows; embattled, parapet. Returns show ground-floor openings with re-used C14 trefoiled heads, and 2-light transomed windows above. Doorway within porch has flat-pointed head, chamfered surround and 6-panel door.

Apart from fragments adjacent to porch tower, the front and end walls of the main block have fallen. The rear wall shows remains of several doorways and fireplaces, one with a flat-pointed arch within a square frame, under a relieving arch. To rear left, the south wall of the south-west wing shows 2-light windows with remains of diamond-latticed glazing. The north-west or kitchen wing has been much altered and is not of especial interest; a fireplace and dogwheel were removed to Mitford Hall (q.v.).
