More information : (TF 1510 0782) Manor House (LB) (1)

"Of the manor-house only the hall and butteries are left, and of the enceinte only the gatehouse, but these are sufficient to indicate that it must have been a large and important building" (2). Dated by its architecture to c 1320, with porch c 1500, the gatehouse is also c 1320 (2) and originally had a vaulted roof and "chambers over it" (3). In the 17th c the buildings next to the gatehouse were demolished, and stables built out of the materials. (2-3)

The Manor House, in fair condition, is at present unoccupied.

A hall and gatehouse survive from what must have been a medieval manor house, with early 17th century alterations. It is constructed from coursed stone rubble with freestone dressings and steeply pitched Collyweston stone roofs with gable ends. Listed Grade I. (5)
