The architect Sir John Stoane built this manor house in the 19th century as his country home. It is regency in style and the name "Pitshanger" means 'wooded slope frequented by kites'.
Pitshanger ceased to be a residential property in the early 19th century when it became the property of Ealing Council. For many years it was home to the Ealing Public Library and park.
But in 1984 the library moved to new premises and the Manor has since been restored. Since 1987 it has been the Pitshanger Manor Museum and is home to, among other things, an extensive collection of 19th century pottery.
The manor is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am-5pm. Admission is free.
