The Macdonald Alveston Manor has a long and interesting history dating back from before the Norman Conquest.

The first building on the site is thought to have been an Anchorite cell, circa 960, and later a small monastery was built by monks from Worcester who erected the first wooden bridge on the site of the original ford.

Alveston Manor was first mentioned in the Domesday Book and in 1086 it was seized from Wultan, Bishop of Worcester.

In 1562, during the reign of Elizabeth I, it was sold to Sir Ambrose Cave for £1007 3s 6d who then sold it to Ludovic Greville. His son sold it in 1603 to Richard Lane whose father's effigy is affixed to the walls of the remains of the old Saxon church at Alveston.

At one time, the grounds were famous for bowling alleys and in fact both the Nut Walk, in the orchard, and the Monks Walk are thought to have been bowling alleys at one time.

The present building has been erected at different periods. For instance, the bar contains 16th century panelling; the centre of the house is Elizabethan; the gable nearest the road is William and Mary; and the windows in the centre of the building are Queen Anne. The Elizabethan Gazebo facing the bridge is of considerable interest.

Underneath the lounge is an interesting vaulted cellar leading to an underground passage that was at one time used by the monks.

The first performance of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is said to have been given on the Cedar Lawn and in fact the original stage directions relate to the garden as it was before it was altered at the beginning of this century.

Hello this box should be movable. It has lots of information to force an overflow and hopefully this will generate a scrollbar.
A second paragraph will be necessary to force this to happen as the first paragraph is not long enough on its own.
