HISTORY OF HELLENS MANOR (www.hellensmanor.com)
In 1096 the Manor was granted to the de Balun family, who were to witness the signing of the Magna Carta. Thereafter by marriage deed or gift, it passed eventually to the Mortimers, and by 1301 to the Lords Audley, created Earls of Gloucester in 1337.
A nephew, James - companion to the Black Prince - rented the Manor for a pair of silver spurs. He then leased it to Walter Helyon, who gave his name to the house: his descendants have lived here almost without interruption ever since.
The Great Barn at Hellens is a unique historic venue (Grade Two *) dating from the 16th century, when Sir Richard Walwyn - whose pardon from Mary Tudor graces the main house - was Lord of the Manor. The Barn stands on the grounds of one of the oldest historic homes in England.
