What a place to stop off, watch the world go by in such a historic setting. The craft fair,museum and other events go to mark this manor house as Alfords finest . The thatched roof alone is worth a visit.

This is a good year to visit the manor house as they have put together a very good display to commemorate the first world war from the point of view of Alford's local community of that period.As always the huge losses sustained in every small town in Britain cannot help but move us.The house itself is very interesting and you...

The curator was extremely enthusiastic about everything and spent a long time explaining the different things, especially tour... More
