This magnificent 16th century building, is mentioned in the doomsday book. The land where the manor stands, has always had a house on it, it also has its own 13th century chapel that predates the building that stands here now. the chapel has its own fair share of death and destruction surrounding it, an archaeological dig behind the chapel found a skeleton that was buried with its armour and shield.
The house has housed the Villiers family for over 500 years. They were a very prominent, and influential family, and has relations to the Queen, The Queen Mother, Diana Princess of Wales, and the Spencer Family, they also lay claim to being the relatives of 16 British Prime Ministers, including Churchill and Cameron.
How the Villiers became to be so powerful is rumoured to be rife with nastiness, unfortunately we will never know the truth now, but what we do know is that during renovations of the manor house, A female headless skeleton was found clutching a baby skeleton within her arms, she was found in a bricked up room, that wasn't on any of the plans to the building.
This house has been used a few different things during its time, most notably a house, and a college, but few people knew it was also used as a naval officers hospital, but was later opened up to all naval personal to help with treating the wounded and rehabilitating them during and for a few years after WW2. This maybe the reason why there have been numerous accounts of hearing, Footsteps, Strange noises, Knocking sounds, Scratching on the floors above and the walls, some people have even said to hear a Baby Crying and the piercing screams of a lady, who is also said to walk down the halls of the old manor house.
