Listing Text




Manor house, late C16 and early C17, extended in C19 and C20. Timber-framed
and plastered (the C19 and C20 parts brick and plastered), roof tiled. The
earliest part is of L-plan, a C16 crosswing aligned NE-SW and an early C17
wing aligned NW-SE, each with an axial chimney. In the C19 a block was
added in the angle, and the roofs integrated and hipped all round. In the C20
the NW-SE wing was extended to the SE and a further block built in the
angle. Two storeys. SW elevation: on the ground floor one bay window with
C20 casements, C20 gabled porch, and late C19 sash window. On the first floor,
one early C19 sash window and 2 late C19 sash windows. NW (garden) elevation,
2 early C19 sash windows and trellised porch, 3 early C19 sash windows above.
No framing exposed internally. Roof of NE-SW crosswing originally of
crownpost construction, altered to clasped purlin. Roof of NW-SE wing of
clasped purlin construction. This is the third manor house established in
Great Canfield, built on a new site by Thomas Wiseman I or II, between 1579
and 1602, possibly part of a larger house of E-plan. (The Hearth Tax return
of 1662 records 16 hearths). (Eland, p. 143-4, Morant, II, 462).
