Description

“a tranquil oasis of history, hidden away in the middle of a London suburb”

Headstone Manor is a complex of four historic buildings (The manor house, 2 barns and a granary) set in beautiful grounds, including the medieval moat. Headstone Manor House is a Grade I listed building. Built circa 1310, the moated manor house is the earliest surviving timber framed building in Middlesex. Described as ‘one of the most interesting domestic complexes in the whole country’, the fabric of Headstone Manor contains examples of high quality work dating from the 14th, 17th and 18th centuries.
