5/106 Ruins of old manor house
23.8.55 approximately 40 metres south-
- south-east of Wray Barton
Ruins of former manor house in grounds of Wray Barton (q.v.). Late Medieval wall
surviving up to first floor height of granite ashlar with dressed granite detail.
Doorway at centre with projecting lateral stack to right. The doorway has a
chamfered pointed arch and is rebated for a door. The chimney projection to the
right has a chamfered plinth. On the reverse are vestiges of the fireplace;
chamfered well-cut jambs and the beginnings of a shouldered lintel, the lintel
itself has gone.
This site is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Wercia or Wergi and was a separate
manor from Moreton. White's Directory for 1878 mentions a large Tudor mansion
here, presumably the present ruins, which must have been abandoned or at least
downgraded when the C19 house was built nearby.
