Cogges Manor Farm Oxfordshire 11th April 2020
Cogges Manor Farm is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The 13th century manor house and 17th century farm buildings are Grade 11 Listed.
Cogges appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 and the first owner of Cogges was Wadard, who appears as a Norman knight riding a horse on the Bayeux tapestry.
The manor house stood originally by the River Windrush. 'Cogges Castle' was defended by a moat and islands, where the timber play fort and zip wire stands today.
Cogges manor was once held by kings of England including Henry VII and Henry VIII; the latter gave the land to Thomas Pope, the founder of Trinity College Oxford.
Wealthy wool merchant William Blake owned Cogges in the 17th century and became High Sheriff of Oxfordshire. He was linked to the Witney wool trade and funded the Buttercross in Witney and neighbouring Blake School.
Fresh milk from Cogges used to be delivered locally by milkman Fred Turner and the Cook brothers. He still used a hand cart on his rounds in the 1930s.
