Alford Manor House is a very rare example of a composite structure, featuring a wooden frame with reed and plaster (visible from within the house), encased in brick.

Alford Manor HouseGround floor and first floor rooms feature design interventions from Georgian through to Victorian times, whilst the attic floor is virtually untouched since 1611.

Alford Manor House owes much of its existence to the wealth of one of its owners, Sir Robert Christopher, and through marriage to the Manners dynasty (the Dukes of Rutland), as well as to its tenants, most notably the Higgins family. Following a major restoration project the house is now open to visitors.
