A manor house in Somerset, thought to date to before 1150, has been named the longest continuously occupied home in Britain. Salford Manor House features a Norman window in the main bedroom, Tudor fireplaces and doors, and paintings in the spare bedroom of St Francis of Assisi and Mary and Jesus. It also shares key architectural features with early 12th century cathedrals in Hereford and Bristol.
