This image of The Manor, former residence of Mrs. Grote-Joyce, is taken from a Christmas card sent to Mrs. Gay Baggaley by Mr. & Mrs. Southern in 1951 or 1952. Mr. and Mrs. Southern bought the Manor when they came from the USA. Mr. Southern was managing Director of Worthington Simpson of Balderton, now Flowserve. After Mr. Southern died, The Manor was sold and then converted into an hotel. It is now the site of the Manor housing estate.
