Manor House

The Manor House, originally named Barrow Hills, is located within the Test Track area of the site and provides an impressive facility for period locations.

The photos show the front Garden Entrance, the rear facade and a number of the main rooms.  The central staircase is stunning and incorporates a dogleg stair with jacobean style balusters.

The house was built in 1853 and after purchase by the Ministry of Supply in 1952 it was used as an Officers Mess.  In 2004 it was purchased by a consortium headed by Crest Nicholson PLC.

It has since been used for a number of well known film and TV dramas.
