Welcome to Littywood Manor
Littywood Manor is a 14th century double moated manor house set in the rolling Staffordshire countryside yet within 4.5 miles of Stafford town centre.
Littywood is a scheduled monument of national importance and is the only site in the whole of Staffordshire with two concentric circular moats.
Littywood manor is mentioned in the doomsday book and was the manorial home of the Baron of Stafford. It then passed through the Caverswall , Willoughby and Greville families. In c. 1502 the manor was leased to John Stapledon whose family later claimed that they had been tenants since as early as the 12th or 14th century. Littywood is still to this day largely preserved. The moats would have been built for defendsive purposes to protect the house from possible invaders. More of the history of this fascinating house can be obtained from your local library.
Littywood manor is a owner occupied private residence. It is not open to the general public.
