Manor Farm is currently being managed under a Stewardship agreement. It was included in a successful National Forest Tender scheme bid which involved the planting of 60,000 trees. The site has high conservation value which has been enhanced by the creation of scrapes in wet grassland for the existing population of nesting lapwings and curlews. The hay meadow has been created on an archaeological site which dates back to late stone age or Roman/British. The site includes a water course which flows from ponds which originated from ancient monastic carp ponds. Native crayfish live in this spring fed water.
