Seaton Holme, Easington

  • Description

    "A medieval manor house dating from 1249, said to be one of the oldest domestic buildings in England. It was built on even older remains of Anglo-Saxon timber-framed buildings of which evidence was found from archaeological excavation. Together with the Church of St Mary the Virgin, just behind on the opposite side of the road, these were the two principal buildings of medieval Easington. It later became the Rectory. After many different uses and a period of disrepair, the building was bought by Easington Village Parish Council. and following extensive renovation work, it was officially opened by HRH the Duke of Gloucester in 1992. Seaton Holme is a Grade I Listed Building." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
