NOTES: A late Elizabethan moated, timber-framed manor house, built in 1582 by John Caryl encasing an earlier 15th century hall house. In 1884 the house was sold to Wickham Flower, who as a founder member of SPAB (Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings) commissioned Philip Webb to restore it, and to layout the ornamental gardens incorporating the medieval moat. Two extensions were added by Webb (1885-1887 and 1893-1894). After Flower's death in 1904, the house was sold and a new wing added to the north by the architect and landscape designer Inigo Thomas.
