Pockerley Manor illustrates the life of a yeoman farming family in the early 1800s. The present buildings belong to two eras. The oldest part is a surviving wing of a manor hall dating back to around 1400. The later manor house dates from about 1810.
The house, gardens and farm buildings typically depict the lifestyle of a yeoman landowner in the early 1800s. The south facing terraced gardens include a formal garden, vegetable garden and orchard which have been planted appropriately.
Pockerley Manor is licenced for the solemnization of marriages - so wedding ceremonies can be arranged, complete with decorated car and tram to transport the wedding party around the site.
