Full description

Copeland, G. W., Notes on Devon Houses (Un-published). SDV176656.

The house known as Wrangaton is on the south side of the road at Wrangaton. Copeland, in his rambles, refers to this as "Old Wrangaton Manor" but the house and old farm buildings known as "Wrangaton Manor" and named as such on the Ordnance Survey 6 inch historic map are on the north side of the road 200 metres east of Wrangaton. Copeland gives a fussy and detailed description of "Wrangaton". Of course he calls it Wrangaton Old Manor. He does not date the present house; says it is "a long, rectangular stone-built building of no architectural pretensions, but to west is old house of some interest".
Irregular plan house, multi-dated. Core is 17th century or earlier. Rubble. Partly slate-hung, slate roofs, plaster stack. Large chimney breasts towards road. Two sashes. Four window front. Entry: gate has stop chamfered granite monolithic jamb and wood lintel (there seems to be some confusion in description by Copeland. See sx65ne/41).

The house does not appear to be shown on the Tithe Map; the only structure depicted at this location is extremely small.
