Built on a grand scale for Ernst Eriksen and his wife Ethel, Norscot Manor began in 1936 as a cottage on a quiet farm. Thanks to his successful Ford motorcar dealership, Eriksen could afford a fine home produced by master-craftsmen, and suitable for lavish entertaining. Since 1982, Norscot has served as a lively and much-loved community centre.
