Manor Farmhouse, Woodside, Longstanton

History of Manor Farmhouse

Listed Building:

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.

1871 the ‘farm house’ in this census may be the same location

1881 Farm house. It is not certain that this farm house is the same  as manor Farmhouse. It may be a farm house close to the centre of St Michael’s Long Stanton such as The Grange.
