Features of Wisbech St Mary Manor House include a lean-to timber glasshouse, topiary yews and pollarded trees.

History

Manor House was created in the late-18th century as a private residence.

Detailed Description

Adjoining and flanking the house are shaped and curving forecourt walls with pilaster buttresses framing a doorway. To the south of the house is a lean-to timber glasshouse with an access through the curved wall. The front garden is dominated by two large topiary yews which frame and dwarf the house. These are further balanced by mature evergreen oaks. Luckily the fields opposite the Manor house to the west are still arable and not developed. There is a small park to the rear of the Manor with mature pollarded trees.
