The History of Grafton Manor

Grafton Manor, situated in the tranquil town of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, boasts a rich and inspiring history. Originally, this enchanting manor was a part of the great Grafton Manor Estate, dating back to the 11th century. Records indicate that the oldest parts of the current manor, the chapel and the hall, were constructed in the 14th and 15th centuries respectively. Grafton Manor underwent significant reconstruction in the 18th century under the ownership of the Hickman Family, giving it the Georgian style that is enjoyed today. The manor received further enhancements during the 19th Century, with the addition of Victorian elements influenced by the Gothic revival architectural trend. Amidst historic turmoil, Grafton Manor remarkably escaped destruction during both the English Civil War and the two World Wars, making it one of the oldest surviving manor houses in the region. Throughout the centuries, the estate primarily served as a private residence until the late 20th century when it was transformed into an elegant wedding venue, hotel, and restaurant, retaining its historical allure whilst offering modern conveniences. Now, Grafton Manor stands gracefully in elegant gardens, providing a stunning backdrop for weddings – a testament to its timeless appeal and adaptability, offering a fascinating blend of history and grandeur. Today, Grafton Manor remains vitally important to the heritage of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, while also serving as a picturesque symbol of the English countryside.
