Rudloe Manor (Photos by John Hancock)

Rudloe Manor is a late 17th century manor house overlooking the beautiful Bybrook valley, surrounded by ancillary buildings including a Grade II listed barn. The house was part of a larger Ministry of Defence site which was vacated in 1998. The house has remained vacant. The current owners have drawn up a residential scheme with enabling development and the proposals are awaiting planning approval.

Since the MOD left the Rudloe Manor site, the manor itself is sadly in a bad state of disrepair. The following two photos were taken in April this year to show the detail of the ceiling of the hall. The Manor is now on English Heritage‟s Heritage at Risk Register, that is, suffering from neglect, decay or inappropriate change. Rudloe Manor‟s condition is described as “poor”.
