    Did a daytrip to this manor house in Oxfordshire on a weekend in March. First explore for two months, and what a choice to get back into exploring. A perfect relaxing explore, with wonderful blue skies, deep in the countryside. I couldn't ask for more. I would say it has been one of my favourite explores since Tone Mill, as it seem steep full of history.

    The place was like walking back in time with old cooking stoves, heaters and documents dating back to the turn of the 20th century. Two huge hall rooms both capped the day's explore.

    This manor house seems to be going under renovation work as there is scaffolding encasing the area, which is good as from what I can research the place is Grade 2 listed. However from reading previous reports not much seems to have been done in way of repair work.

    The history of the place seems to date a couple of centuries and it appears to be built using local stone. The manor house is still active, with parts of it still liveable, although it is part of a huge estate! I would say that's probably why it is still in 'good condition!'
