Summary : Formerly a Manor House of the Bishops of Chichester. Evidence of 14th century work and a small Elizabethan wing.
More information : (TQ 74640799) Manor House (NAT). (1)

Formerly a Manor House of the Bishops of Chichester. It is
stone-built and of irregular plan. The oldest part is L-shaped,
the two arms running N and W. At the junction there is a small wing, probably Elizabethan. There is evidence of 14th century work in places. The house was fortified in 1447. (2)

Considerable alterations and additions made to the original
structure are in keeping with the style of the old house. The
best original work is visible on the E side of the N wing, facing the court. (See ground photo).

The Manor House was largely demolished 5-6 years ago, but some interior and exterior footings and walls, much restored, were incorporated into what is now known as "Manor House Public Gardens".

The gardens also incorporate the former barn, library and
stables of the house. Published survey (25") revised. (3)
