Barrington Court

Barrington Court, the local manor house, is a fine Tudor building which anticipates some features of the later Elizabethan style. It was built around 1514 for Henry Daubeney, perhaps finished as late as 1558 for William Clifton. The interior was virtually gutted in 1825, and restored in 1921–25 by Forbes and Tate for A.A. Lyle having passed to the National Trust in 1908. It is a Grade I listed building.

Barrington Court was one of the locations used for the BBC's acclaimed production of Wolfe Hall. Filming took place here during 2014.
