Cheylesmore Manor House

Camera No. 31
Camera No. 68

if you wish to see the images separately.

This rather ordinary looking 1940s view certainly doesn't give the impression that this was once part of a grand building and the residence of Queen Isabella. Fortunately, a tasteful restoration in 1967 revealed the original timbers and gave the structure the appearance of the ancient house that it is.

If you click the image, it can be seen that the modern facade and part of the roof has had to be carefully stripped away. To discover a little more about the gatehouse of the old Cheylesmore Manor, click here.

Below is the other, south, side of the manor. This atmospheric view, presumably of the family who occupied the dwelling, was taken around 1920. I wonder if they had any idea of its antiquity and prestige? A click on the image will reveal the same view in 2022.
