Passenham Manor exudes history and was built (or re-built on older foundations) in 1623 with 18th century additions on the southeastern side. The 19th century saw more alterations and in 1935 a nursery attic was added, the house was re-roofed to designs by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

Within the grounds of Passenham Manor is a huge Grade 1 listed Tythe Barn (110’ x 25’), that is believed to date from the early 16th century.  The walls are constructed of limestone, with an elaborate tie beam roof that is tiled.  It is thought that it was used during the Civil War as a hospital by Cromwell’s troops after the battle of Naseby.
