1. (east side)
Wantley Manor
TQ 2116 19/262 15.3.55


The back part is timber-framed and really forms three sides of a square. The oldest
section of this containing the medieval hall is probably the south wing. The east
wing, which later was converted into outhouses, was probably added next and the
west wing, now hidden by a latter C18 addition further west again, later. The timberframi
is exposed in some places but has mostly been refaced with red brick or tiles on
a cemented or brick base. The roof was originally of Horsham slabs but has mostly
been refaced with tiles, one section being pantiles. Casement windows. Two storeys.
Three windows to each wing.
In the C18 the west wing was doubled by a portion facing the road. This has two
storeys and three windows and is faced with red mathematical tiles. Modillion eaves
cornice. Hipped Horsham slab roof. Glazing bars intact. Doorway with engaged
columns, pediment, semi-circular fanlight and door of 6 fielded panels. Small
circular window on each side of the door, inserted about 1920.
