Full Description

Map depiction of building. (1)
The old manor house of Sutton, immediately west of Sutton Church and now three cottages, has upper cruck construction in the gable of the cross wing and apparently aisled construction in the main range. (2)
St. Anne's (Sutton Bonnington) Manor, situated on a slight eminence near St. Anne's Church, was a timber-framed house built in the early C16 on an 'L'-shaped plan. It was altered and partially rebuilt in brick in C18. Much of the original timber framing was retained in the north and west sides and in the gable end in the north cross wing. The south end was almost completely rebuilt in brick. William Paget (1807-65) acquired the estate from Lord Tamworth in 1832 and greatly enlarged the house in 1861 …after the Second World War the house was converted into four cottages (numbers 15 to 21 St. Anne's Lane). About 1959 a clearance order was placed on them as they had become unfit for human habitation. They were eventually demolished in 1965 and replaced by modern housing. (3)
NB this is not the same as St. Ann's Manor, depicted on early OS maps and located 170 metres to the north west of this site, over the railway line.
