THE MANOR AT CORSLEY

Manor Farm from hill copy.jpg

Sir John Thynne lived in this Manor at Corsley in the 1560s whilst building his grand estate at Longleat. Later, his widow Dorothy and Sir Carew Raleigh were married from the house, with his brother Sir Walter as best man and a regular visitor for the next 10 years. Whilst Sir John provided the setting, the Raleigh brothers were the artistic inspiration for The Playhouse project.
