THE MANOR - TUR LANGTON
The Manor is approached down a short avenue to the west of the village. It is now part of a thriving business centre with shops, coffee shop and business set in beautiful countryside.
The remains of the original chapel lie in the grounds with just the north doorway remaining.
It is a grade 2 listed building which dates back to the early 1600s, replacing an earlier, much larger medieval house, probably built and lived in by the Maunsell family, lords of the Manor. The house today was originally built as an H plan, but only the central range (originally forming the great hall) and part of the north wing survive, the rest being demolished in the late 18th century by fire.
In the east front of the central range, near its north end, is the original main doorway. Next to it a tall four-light window with ovolo-moulded mullions presumably lit the great hall. The interior of the house has been massively altered with just the huge fireplace in the kitchen being original.
