Preston Manor is largely a 1738 rebuilding with 19th/20th century
additions, but the ground floor incorporates remains of an earlier
building including two originally external square-headed stone Jacobean doorways with moulded architraves. Of two
round-headed 'interior doorways one is of late date, the other,
with a moulded stone surround, may be of 13th century date and in situ. (4)
