Site visit 6th December 1978. The farmhouse at South Hole does not appear to incorporate any features from the old manor house. A platform at SS21852008 was suggested by the present owner as the site of the manor house, but no evidence is available. A very crude datestone '1719' is in the base of the garden wall, but may not be genuine.
