[TQ 8203 5660] Ripple [NR] (1) Ripple, now a small farmstead, was once the seat of Sir Martin Barnham who owned Ripple Manor circa 1570. [See TQ 85 NW 3 - alternative site]. (2) A farmhouse incorporating the remains of an ancient manor house. It is associated with Jack Cade and probably dates from the reign of Henry VI. (3) Ripple is a small two-storied timber-framed farmstead cased in brick and the SE facing front presents an unrelieved late 17th or early 18th century facade. Without its manorial and other associations this building would be of very little interest. GP AO/61/73/4: SE front. (4)
