  • Proposed Purchase of Mickleton Manor

    Leaflet, dated 9th March 1976, from the Parish Council to Mickleton residents setting out the case for purchasing Mickleton Manor for community use. The Manor House and grounds had been offered to the village by the owner, Miss Hamilton, for £15,000.

    There was insufficient support for the idea and the offer was turned down.
