This fine old timber-framed building with brick infill dates from the 17th century and is known as the Old Manor House. Some buildings in Aldbury, like this one, have brick 'Noggin' infill and others have wattle and daub.

Bricks became commonly available at the beginning of the 17th century so this house could have been built with brick infill but the bricks could have replaced wattle and daub at a later date.

The Duke of Bridgewater Monument on the ridge above the village. This monument is open for only part of the year and normally only Saturdays and Sundays.
