Prebendal Manor House

  • Earlier Houses: The current house sits on the site of a Saxon hall.

    House & Family History: Prebendal is the oldest manor house in Northamptonshire, as well as one of the oldest continuously lived-in houses in England. It forms the focus of a group of stone buildings, which includes a 16th century dovecote, a large 18th century tithe barn, and a 15th century lodgings building. The current stone house dates from the early 13th century and stands on a historic site, which includes two medieval fishponds, and archaeological and historical evidence of one of King Cnut's royal timber halls.
