Vis=19/1/1954(os) the site of the house was a slightly higher irregular platform of ground in what is now a grass covered field. It was probably constructed in the 16th and 17th centuries, and demolished in the early 18th century. The manor of tidwell was the seat of the seyntclere family until the end of the 16th century when, following the decline of the family, the manor house was pulled down and the fabric sold. The estate eventually passed by marriage into the arscott family and a new house was built on the site (hanham).
