Listing Text

6/2 East Barsham

30.11.51 Manor
(formerly listed as
East Barsham Manor


Manor house built c.1520-1530 for Sir Henry Fermor. Brick rubble with much carved and
moulded brick decoration; red pantiles. House of 2 storeys articulated with polygonal
angle shafts and battlements. Two-storey porch, slightly off-centre. Four centred
stone arch, with flint and stone chequer work angles at ground floor, but brick above;
carved brick coat of arms, 3-light arched headed windows above: the architectural and
decorative inspiration is thus still Gothic rather than Renaissance. Hall range to
west with the three bays divided by angle shafts, with decorated bands and
battlements; brick mullioned and transomed windows. Service range to east of 3 bays,
the central bay built up into a 3 storey tower, possibly originally balanced by
another to the Hall range. This range was largely ruined in the C19 and the house was
restored in 1919 and 1938. At west massive stack of 10 chimneys.
