OS 6" map (1957)

The house of Lamancha incorporates work of several periods. The oldest part appears to be the vaulted basement which may have formed part of the "little house" erected at Romanno Grange in 1663 (A Pennecuik 1815). The building was lengthened considerably at some time before 1832, when further extensions were made. It was reduced and remodelled in 1927. In front of the house, there is a carved stone sundial, which probably dates to the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.

This building, and the sundial at NT 1995 5223 are as described and illustrated by the previous authorities. The present house, still known as Lamancha, is on the site of and incorporates the remains of Romanno Grange (Mrs R Munro, owner, Lamancha).

Sundial surveyed at 1/2500.
