Old Albyns Manor Wall
Old Albyns Manor Wall
There was formerly a very fine manor house at Albyns, most of which dated from the early 17th century. It incorporated parts of a smaller house which was probably built by the Cely family in the middle of the 16th century. The building was fully surveyed in 1920 by the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments. A few years later the American owner removed most of the elaborate 17th-century fittings and transported them to the United States. The subsequent owner demolished the north side of the house and rebuilt the facade further back. In 1945 a V2 Rocket did come down close to Albyns Manor doing enough damage to the house that it was demolished as a direct result in the early 1950s.
