Record Details

NHER Number:15114
Type of record:Building
Name:Bacton Manor and Manor Farm.


The Manor house is originally a late 16th century farmhouse with later alterations and extensions. It is of flint, with brick dressings and a thatched roof. Interestingly, like some other buildings in the area, the house contains some reused dressing stone from Bromholm Priory (NHER1073).
Manor Farm is the building adjoining the Manor house to form a V shape. It is also of flint and brick, and probably dates to the 17th century, although much altered. The two buildings were separate until joined in the 19th century.
