Old Marston Parish Council

Manor House

Manor House is situated on the corner of Ponds Lane and Mill Lane. It is one of the oldest houses in Old Marston. It was once the home of Unton Crooke who was at one time a member of Parliament and a magistrate. It was in this house that Oliver Cromwell negotiated the surrender of Oxford with representatives of the Royalist garisson. This prevented what would have been a bloody battle of street fighting with great loss of life. This also helped to bring to an end the Civil War between the King and Parliament.
