7/85 The Manor House
Manor house. Probably late C16/C17 for the Bustard family incorporating earlier
elements; restored 1887 by Aston Webb and altered and extended c.1930. Coursed
squared marlstone with marlstone- and limestone-ashlar dressings,
Stonesfield-slate roofs with stone-and-brick stacks. Main range (possibly
incorporating a hall house) plus shallow flanking wings and subsidiary ranges to
rear. 2 storeys plus attic. Irregular front has a 5-window central section with
the 3 left bays projecting below a parapet; most of the limestone-mullioned
windows with hollow chamfers are probably C16/C17 and are linked by continuous
moulded strings serving as label moulds. Gabled wing, projecting to left, has
renewed marlstone-mullioned windows to 3 floors. Lower gabled projection to
right has C16/C17 mullioned windows with labels. All windows have leaded
glazing. Gables have plain parapets, and the right end wall returns to a gabled
porch containing the main entrance and bearing a monogram and the date 1887; it
links to the long single-storey billiards-room range which has large transomed
stone-mullioned windows. To rear of main range are subsidiary ranges and
additions. Roofs have numerous stone-based stacks with tall clustered C19 brick
shafts, most set diagonally but some with spiral and chevron decoration.
Interior not inspected but noted as containing traces of an open hall plus a
large 4-centre-arched stone fireplace and some late-C16 plasterwork in a bay
