Walton Manor (House). Walton House (not to be confused with Walton Hall) was built in the 18th century probably for Elias Wright. In 1849 the house was bought by Charles Waterton the Naturalist.
Later, after the Squire's death, the house was acquired by his old adversaries, the Simpsons of Hodgson & Simpson soap manufacturing fame, who had also bought Walton Hall.
For much of the time the house was occupied by a succession of tenants. In 1953, the house was bought by the local council and became a care home for the elderly.
In the 1990s the house was sold and is now a privately run care home and is known as Walton Manor.
