23.9.55 Manor House (formerly listed
as Nos 146 to 160 "The
Manor house. Circa 1300 with C15 and C16 additions and alterations.
Extensively restored c1960 when C18 and C19 alterations were removed
and the timber-frame exposed and repaired. Timber-framed with tile
roofs. Buildings grouped around a courtyard and surrounded by a moat
The Hall: the west wall was rebuilt late C16 and has a 14-light bay
window with gabled chamber over. Interior: spere truss has solid screens
between posts and side walls. Central base-cruck truss has double tie-
beams clasping the roof plates, and an upper crown-post roof. Cross-wings
added early C15 replacing earlier appendages to the hall. Each has a small
annexe to the west and is of two bays with a central tie-beam truss and
intermediate arch-braced collar-beam truss. Two ogee-headed service door-
ways open into the south wing. The chapel block was added to the east end
of the north cross-wing c1500. It has a full-height chapel to the east
and a western half of two storeys. The kitchen block, adjoining the south-
west corner of the south cross-wing, is late C16 with C17 alterations.
The gatehouse is probably late C16 and closes the east side of the courtyard.
It is jettied and has close-studding, with lozenge panels to the upper part
of the first floor. A large brick chimney stack projects from its south
gable wall. The building is discussed and illustrated in detail in Jones,
SR, "West Bromwich (Staffs) Manor House", South Staffordshire Archaeological
and Historical Society Transactions, Vol XVII, 1975-76.
