Dance Information

Wortham Manor is an historic manor within the parish of Lifton in Devon, England.

The early 16th century manor house survives, today the property of the Landmark Trust. It was long the seat of the Dynham family, a junior branch descended from the Anglo-Norman magnate Baron Dynham.
