Feature Sets

The late Romanesque doorway was originally in the back stairs in the SW portion of the manor near an underground chamber, now sealed off, which is said to have led to the chancel of the church. It was reset as an entrance to the existing dining room by Norman Jewson, in 1926.


Under Edward the Confessor, the manor was held by Tosti, but by Domesday, the owner was Walter Fitz Pons. A mill is recorded and this was probably on the site of the mill, which existed until recently. The existence of a priest is recorded in the Domesday Book when, the manor had 10 hides, covering 1,440 acres, four teams of oxen for the lord and eight for the tenant, with a male adult population of 35.


Exterior Features



The stone keyed into the wall and common to the L base and shaft appears to have marks across it, which correspond to the articulation of the base and shaft.
