The Manor House, West Bromwich

The Manor House, West Bromwich

This view shows the Gate House entrance of The Manor House, possibly the most complete example of a mediaeval timber-framed hall in existance. It is in Hall Green Road, West Bromwich. The oldest part of the building, the Great Hall is thought to date back to 1290-1310. Recent tree ring dating showed the timber to have been cut down @1275. The building is surrounded by a moat. Originally built by the de Marnham family as the centre of their agricultural estate in West Bromwich. Successive occupants modernised and extended the Manor House until it was described in 1790 as “a large pile of irregular half-timbered buildings, black and white, and surrounded with numerous out-houses and lofty walls.”
From the 1880s it was used as tenements and in the 1950s up to six families lived in various parts of it. At this time the building was looking pretty dilapidated with plaster on the outer walls hiding the timber. In 1950 West Bromwich Corporation purchased the then derelict property and not realising the true nature of the building planned to demolish it, but after a campaign from conservationists they agreed to restore it. It is now a grade 1 listed building.
The restoration work was completed in 1959 and in 1960 Ansells adapted the building into a licenced premises, it proofing to be a popular destination for weddings and mediaeval banquets.

Sadly, it ceased trading a couple of months ago and now faces an uncertain future until it is sold.
