The Lords of the Manor included members of important local families -- the Giffards, Norwoods and Tryes -- and this book relates some of their more interesting achievements. During the First World War the Court housed a Red Cross hospital, and in the Second World War a camp was set up in the grounds, occupied in turn by British and US troops and then by German POWs. Today the Court is best known as a Sue Ryder Hospice, noted for its atmosphere of love, compassion, unhurried care and understanding of patients' needs. This book is sold entirely in aid of its running costs.
