Full Description

Manor house - Chilwell. Demolished. (1)
Built of brick in 1679, this two-storey house with attics and plain gables stood on a triangular site between High Road and Bye-Pass Road. The house was built on a square plan with through passage from back to front. It had a tiled roof, and mullioned windows on the side. Sash windows were added at a later date. Part of the panelling of the house was believed to have come from St. Mary Magdalene's Church, Attenborough. In spite of strong protests by the Thoroton Society of Nottinghamshire, the county's principal historical society, the house was demolished in 1965 to make way for a private housing estate. (3)
