BD165: Rock Of The Ages
Everything about Lesley Manners’ 15 th Century tower and its manor house is dramatic: the rugged stone, its history at the heart of the Border skirmishes, and its position, rising up from parkland, outlined against ever-changing Northumberland skies. There’s no forgetting that this was a house built for serious times, when cross-
border raids were a real and constant danger and lookouts had to be stout of wall, narrow of window, and with clear, sweeping views towards border and coast. The real surprise is how her own resolutely contemporary taste and passion for mid-20 th Century design has given it a beguiling new life. ‘I’ve learned,’ she says, ‘that very modern furniture and paintings can work perfectly in such an ancient setting.'
