Name:Gurney's Manor


The earliest part of this building dates to about 1600, with later west extensions of about 1700. However, the most imposing part of the house is its grand Georgian east façade. This was built in 1826, when other alterations were also made, including the addition of attics over the older part of the house. At the west end of the house are the former stables dating to the mid 19th century, which are now squash courts.
