Old Manor House
Listed Building Grade II*
- Largely ruined manor house, with a rear kitchen wing converted into a house in the 1960s.. The main block was east facing, with a pair of wings to the rear enclosing a small courtyard. The most prominent surviving feature is the centrally-positioned three storey porch tower on the east front, with an ornate rounded arched doorway and crenellations at the top. Of the main block, the west wall and parts of the southwest wing survive, and the northwest wing is now a house.
