The Manor House - Toller Whelme
The Manor House - Toller Whelme
The original and hidden (in this view) C15 core is at the rear of the property. The front, seen here, is essentially C17 together with an C18 extension also at the rear. The home of the Penne family from 1630, it was subsequently bought by George Richards of Long Bredy in 1708, and then became the home of William Pope and his descendants for well over a hundred years. Sadly the family lost the manor when it was mortgaged to fund the escalating costs of building the church, a project the family had financed. After suffering mixed fortunes, the house has since been carefully restored over the years by a succession of sympathetic owners. The property is Grade II* Listed.
