A manor house may have existed there since the 12th century.

The view, taken by Edwin Allen, shows a later dilapidated building, which had become a home for farmworkers on Heaseman’s Farm.

Two of them are shown here; on the left, George Gates, and the other man may be Thomas Keats.

The house was later renovated after 1918, and, in 1968, opened as the Manor Club.

If you have any old postcards or photos, please get in touch.
