Description

Slide 8: The west is perhaps the most attractive where the high terrace commands a fine prospect of the country.

The Witham's held the Manor for three generations and sold it in 1639 to Sir Thomas Wentworth, afterwards Earl of Strafford, who made it a stately mansion, and after living a strenuous life in the service of his country was arraigned for so called treason, and was executed in May 1641. The property shortly after was sold to Sir John Lewis, of Marr, Doncaster
