Wrangaton Manor. The house and old farm buildings known as 'Wrangaton Manor' are on the north side of the road at Wrangaton. The Ordnance Survey 6 inch map names it as 'Wrangaton Manor, On the site of Manor House'. The present building is 19th century and is not a handsome building. The plastered walls and Victorian embellishments have taken away any character the building may have had. The old farm buildings nearby, in ruinous condition, are far more interesting.
Wrangaton Manor is an early 19th century house on earlier site. Plastered walls with hipped slate roof and plastered stacks. Two storeys. Sash windows. Three window fronts. Metal veranda on two sides.
