Summary

Paradise Manor is one wing of what is thought to have been a major Elizabethan house. A surprisingly long inscription table dates the house to 1600, and it is thought that it may stand on the site of the medieval manor. The wing is itself largely intact, although it was heavily altered around 1820. The rear wings date to around 1700, as does the associated barn.
