Sewards Hall Farm. Mentioned in Domesday, this is a 15th manor house on a moated site plus a smaller 16th house. There was some fire damage in 1885. It was originally a hall house with the other house corner to corner with it, for separate households. Inside is a bread oven with a cast iron door, an early wooden and lead lined water tank, and a pump in working order with a stone sink. Outside is a privy with 'Manor Closet', with a wooden seat with a wooden lid, and a lower seat for child. Up to 1977 this was a dairy farm with Friesian/Canadian Holstein cows.
