We believe Lilliput Lane's "Moreton Manor" is based on two buildings in Westington, Chipping Campden, not at Moreton in the Marsh as indicated in Gullivers World and deed Deed

"Built around the mid-1800s, the home that inspired Moreton Manor sits beside the road leading out of the Worcestershire village of Moreton-in-the-Marsh, not far from the rather gruesomely named twin villages of Upper and Lower Slaughter".

Firstly, the picture in Gullivers World does not look like the model. Secondly, an extensicve search of then roads around Moreton in the Marsh did not show buildings like that depicted.

Jan Tarrant writes:

"A house in Shepherd's Close, Westington, Chipping Campden which shows many features of - LL Moreton Manor.
Adjacent is the Manor House at Westington which has window features incorporated on LL Moreton Manor

Our conclusion is LL Moreton Manor is a Compilation of these two buildings at Westington"
