Stoke-by-Nayland 1. 5377 Giffords Hall (formerly listed as Giffords Hall and ruined Chapel of St Nicholas) TM 03 NW 13/809 10.1.53. I GV 2. The present house, which was built by the Mannock family who held the manor from 1428, is mainly of the early C16 but incorporates the remains of an earlier building. There were some alterations and additions in the early C18 and late C19. The timber-framed house is built around a quadrangular courtyard with a 2 storeyed red brick gatehouse on the south side and a great hall on the north. The outer (south) front of the gatehouse has angle turrets, stepped battlements and brick pinnacles. The windows have 4-centred heads to the lights and there is a 4-centred arch with blank tracery in the spandrels and a frieze with cusped tracery above. The front to the courtyard has 3 stepped gables. The interior of the great hall has a fine example of a double-hammerbeam roof with carved arched braces and spandrels, and a late C17 minstrels gallery with twisted balusters.
