ALBERBURY WITH -
5/5 Wattlesborough Hall
Farmhouse. Soon after c.1711. Roughly squared and coursed red and grey
sandstone with red sandstone dressings; rendered left-hand gable end;
graded slate roof. 2 storeys. Plinth, moulded stone eaves cornice, and
parapeted gable end to left with stone coping and moulded kneelers; integral
brick end stack to left. 5 bays; C19 wooden cross-windows with triple-
keyed lintels; central C20 glazed door with heavy rusticated surround and
5-keyed lintel. Right-hand ground-floor window is probably a former
doorway (see straight joints and brickwork below cill). 3 windows at rear;
raised central first-floor staircase window and blocked stone cross-window off-centre
to right. C20 brown brick one-storey addition at rear. Interior: C18
three-flight staircase with winders, rising to attic: closed string, turned
balusters, moulded handrail and beaded square bottom newel post. The house
was built adjoining the remains of Wattlesborough Castle (qv) and both
were occupied as one dwelling until the late C19. There is an engraving
in the farmhouse showing the castle with a probably medieval wing on the
site of the present C18 building so the latter probably incorporates reused
materials and might even be a thorough remodelling. County A.M. No 126.

in Britain (1971), p.341.
