Description from record TQ 95 NW 11:
[TQ 9041 5873] Milstead Manor [NAT] (1) Milstead Manor House, Grade II*, Manor Road (south side). 16th to 18th century. (For full description see list.) (2) Milstead Manor, very large, close-studded and with a continuous overhang. U-shaped plan. The north front is symmetrical, but the regularity is upset by two afterthoughts, the clock turret and partial refacing in brick in the 17th century. (3)
