Manor Farmhouse, Woodside, Longstanton
History of Manor Farmhouse
Early C19 two storey, double-pile house, with C15/C16 timber framing in north range and C20 extensions to the rear.
Longstanton Manor House is an early C19 house which encases a C15/C16 timber framed remnant of a late medieval hall. It is suggested that the timber framed elements, including bridging beams and doorways, are the remnants of Cheyneys Manor House, a medieval hall house. From C16 the house was used as a farm and heavily remodelled in the C19 and C20. Today the house is largely a substantially intact C19 house with decorative plasterwork and fireplaces.
