Strong and Sturdy

The pathway to the strong and sturdy door of Westwood Manor, Westwood, Near Trowbridge, Wiltshire.

Built over three centuries from the fifteenth century, and adapted and changed on several occassions in its lifetime, it is the most recent restoration that has had the most impact - thanks to the restorers skills and understanding of medieval, Tudor and Jacobean periods.

In 1911 Edgar 'Ted' Lister bought Westwood Manor and with much attention to detail restored it to its 17th-century glory.

Taking back alterations he uncovered original wall panelling, ceiling and even original window glazing hidden underneath plaster.

Ooooh, looks a great place to visit! Now on my bucket list
