The Manor House, Bedhampton, Hampshire

In 2016, AHP was commissioned to research the history and define the significance of the Grade II-listed Manor House at Bedhampton in order to inform proposals for its future use. This entailed archival research as well as fabric analysis to establish the complex development of this multi-phase building. The documentary history of the manor of Bedhampton goes back to the ninth century but the only above-ground remains of the earlier manor house are the Grade II-listed Tudor brick boundary walls enclosing the gardens. The Manor House is a large detached house with a sixteenth-century core which has been altered and extended over time, notably in the mid-nineteenth century. It was rescued from demolition in 1967 by the formation of the Manor Trust who established a residential home there.
