Lower Brockhampton

This is a very fine example of a country Manor House of the medieval period. Although there has been tinkering and probably loss of a full solar wing to the west, where the hall fireplace now is, the hall itself and adjacent 'screens passage' bay which divided the hall from the kitchen, remains intact. There is a cruck central truss and spere truss
