Description:
The enclosure called Hill Six Acres, the site of the Old Manor House of Algarkirk, was also known as Hiptoft Hall, alias Toops Manor. It was held in the 13th century by the Hiptofts, in the 14th century by the Toops and from the 15th to 18th century by the Meres. Sir John Meres, last of the line, died in 1736. It is also traditionally the site of the chief mansion of Algar, Earl of Mercia, who died in 870 AD. A moat enclosed about 10 acres. On the southern side, where the house stood, were the brick foundations of a drawbridge. On the north there had been a large building, probably a watchtower.{1}{2}{3}{4}{5}{6}{7}{8}{9}
