Finmere House

L3486. The Manor House at Finmere has been in existence since the latter part of the 17th century. However, the south facing frontage seen here was added to the existing Tudor house in the first half of the 18th century by its then resident John Pollard. This handsome brick fa'ade with its seven bays, and Tuscan pilasters and pediment surrounding the entrance doorway was designed to bring the building up to the proportions and standards expected of an 18th century gentleman's residence. Finmere House still stands today, although it has sadly fallen into a state of disrepair.
