View of Manor Farmhouse during the process of demolition, seen from the south. It was built on the site of the medieval manor which was said to be in great ruin and decay in 1487 when Henry VII leased the land to Roger Hopton to build a new house on. Partially hidden in the centre here is the timber-framed bay which was part of the original house built by Roger Hopton. Other parts were added later, including the stone-built west wing on the left, dating from the 16th-17th centuries, and the brick east wing on the right from the late 18th century.
