Renovations (External)

The Chimney

The chimney required very significant repair.

The North West End

This part of the house was almost certainly built at the early part of the 16th century using Lady Margaret's endowment.  Although the facing wall is now brick clad, the wooden frame is exposed and consistent with the construction of most of the 16th century part of the house.

The Second 15th Century House - Now our small sitting room

Some debate exists as to whether this is an original house on the site at the time Lady Margaret acquired the Manor in 1504/06 or whether this was part of the later 16th Century construction.

 

Possibly dating from the same time as the Study, ie early 15th Century, this part of the house was in a parlous state of repair

 

Significant damage to the sole plate of the upper storey due to removal of jetty and build up of clay bat wall beneath

 

Significant erosion of the upper timbers
