LOWER SLAUGHTER SP 1622 10/29 The Manor House (previously listed as The 7.3.80 Manor House Hotel) - II Manor house, 1656, mason Valentine Strong to a design (apparently) of the Lord of the Manor Richard Whitmore: altered and enlarged 1864 and 1891 in a style rather of the C17 so as to appear largely modern. The original house was of the Commonwealth type, four square with hipped roof. Coursed stone with tiled roof. Two storeys and attic on plinth, five windows with three gabled dormers, this has been refronted and refenestrated, with the central entrance removed. Large two bay wing to east added in 1891, a late Victorian interpretation of the original rather than a copy, two and five light stone mullioned windows and two flat topped dormers. The original shape of the house is better seen from the garden (north) front. The house retains important interior fittings which are the reason for listing. These include the hall fireplace dated 1658. The dining room fireplace of a Baroque character which may be reset, also a fine allegorical plaster ceiling.

Please note that the inclusion of a listed building on this website does not mean it is open to the public.
