The old Norman manor house at Hemingford Grey, situated close to the late 12th century church of Saint James, is noted by Pevsner as being ‘of very special interest’ for its central hall, which dates from the 12th century. The gardens of the manor house, which was the rented home of Fraser Garden’s parents, extended down to the River Ouse, with a moat enclosing the grounds on the other three sides.
