Norbury Manor

A National Trust property with restricted opening hours.

Approx 5 miles away


Norbury Manor is the former seat of the Fitzherbert family, who now reside in Tissington Hall.

The property is a rare example of a medieval hall built on the first floor and once formed part of the private apartments of the Fitzherberts. The surviving part of the original early medieval hall offers a rare king post, Tudor door and 17th-century Flemish glass. Visitors can also find a beautifully maintained small garden space which includes a knot garden, as well as a short walk into the woodland, and path which leads down to the River Dove.

The manor is run by the National Trust (entry is free for NT members) – opening hours are restricted so check their website for details. There are no visitor facilities and parking is limited.
