Open day Moated Manor House Gilberts Farm Bransfor
Gilberts Farm Medieval Moated Manor House Chapel Lane, Bransford, Worcs

Open Days: Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th August 10:30am – 4:30pm

On Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th August the newly restored medieval moated manor house at Gilberts Farm will be open to the public before the new owners move in.

The manor house was acquired by Wolverley Homes in 2002 when the building was near to falling down. Over the last four years the building has been carefully and painstakingly restored and converted into a modern home to the highest conservation standards.

The house itself was first constructed in the fourteenth century as a cruck-framed hall house. Two additional wings were added in the Jacobean period.

Many original features survive such as bench seats, fireplaces and Jacobean wall panelling.

The work on the manor house has generated much local interest and the building will be open to the public for the weekend of the 18/19th August only.


The site is located off of Chapel Lane, southeast of the Bank House Hotel Golf & Country Club, Bransford.

From M5: Exit M5 from J7 onto A4440. Continue on the A4440 across four roundabouts. At the fifth, take the first exit leading to the A4103 Hereford Road. After 1.7 miles turn left onto Chapel Lane, then 0.4 miles further on, turn left onto the Gilberts Farm track.

From New Road, Worcester: Head away from Worcester on the A44 / New Road, then go straight over at the roundabout on to the A4103 Hereford Road. After 1.7 miles turn left onto Chapel Lane, then 0.4 miles further on, turn left onto the Gilberts Farm track

Thanks David,

It a chance to see good conservation practice by the private sector.

Praised by EH and the LPA for its high standards. The archaeological work by Marches Archaeology was called the "model of archaeological good practice". The curators and conservation officers where all helpful etc
