Kingskerswell Manor House (ruins)
Kingskerswell Manor House (ruins)
Behind St. Mary’s Church lie the ruins of the old Kingskerswell Manor House and associated buildings. The buildings are believed to have been in existence before 1387 as it is mentioned in old documents of that date which suggests the manor house and buildings were built by Sir John Dinham. It appears that in 1369 John Dinham was only 11 when he inherited the property but being so young the property was taken back into the ownership of the king, but passed back to Sir John in 1381.

It is now a scheduled monument and trespassers are discouraged by fencing and warning notices.

This photo shows the remains of a tall tower. In view there is a small edge of a large arch showing on the right of the ruined tower and a small arched window edged with limestone blocks interspersed with a few red breccia/sandstone blocks etc above what appears to be a fireplace at ground level.
