Listed Buildings

There are at the moment eleven listed buildings on the statutory list for Wraysbury. There were in 1955 only three nominated:-

1)      King John’s Hunting Lodge originally known as Place Farm or Place House

2)      Ankerwycke Nunnery Ruins, Staines Road and now on National Trust Property

3)      The Church of St Andrew, Windsor Road

In the eighties the Parish Council were contacted by the County of Berkshire Planning Department to provide an opportunity to expand the list and suggest further buildings of “Special Architectural or Historic Interest” As a result of this on 26th April 1984 the Secretary of State compiled a revised and enlarged list of such buildings within the Royal Borough. This list included the previous three and a further eight buildings and they are:-

4)      The Perseverance Public House, High Street

5)      Magna Carta House, Magna Carta Island

6)      Manor Farmhouse, North of the Church, St Andrew’s Close

7)      Downhams, 90 Staines Road

8)      Tithe Farm Cottage, 50 Station Road

9)      Greenwood formerly Wraysbury House Lodge, 74 Station Road

10)   The Old Vicarage, Vicarage Lane

11)   The George Inn, Windsor Road

Other suggestions, twelve in number were proposed by the Parish including the Grange, the Baptist Church, Ankerwycke house (then still surviving as a burnt out shell). Tithe farm itself, the Green Man and Remenham House and others but not included.

More information about all of these buildings both included and not included are preserved in the Parish Archive Room. So if you are curious come and visit us most Thursday mornings 10 – 1 in the Village Hall.
