Brief Description

In 1892, Cherrington Manor House was recorded as a 'gentlewoman's residence,' with a 9 acre park defined by a wood and iron fence. The park contained a small pond of half an acre, was planted with oak and elm, and contained Chinese geese and fallow deer (Whitaker 1892, 129).


Cherrington Manor House, dated to 1635, stands within a medieval moated site. By the late 19th century, and most likely far earlier, the site featured a wooded deer park.
