Whitmore Hall
Whitmore Hall
A Grade-I listed late 17th century manor house of red-brick, Whitmore has been the family home of the Cavenagh-Mainwarings for 900 years, in direct descent from the Norman lords of the estate. The house is built to a square design, with the addition of a 19th century porch to the Carolean design.
In the grounds are an unusual red sandstone Elizabethan stable block featuring a partially cobbled stone floor and carved oaken stalls. An avenue of lime trees leads from the house to the nearby parish church. It is not known who laid out the parkland surrounding the house, but the design bears similarities with the work of famed landscape garden architect Capability Brown.

Whitmore was built in 1676 around the core of a timber-framed Tudor house. The red-brick facade we see today encases the earlier timber-framed structure.
