Wrenshall Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Early C17. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed, with rendered
front, and tile-hanging to sides and rear. Roof of reed thatch. An internal
chimney-stack with 4 attached hexagonal shafts, formerly with a plaster date
of 1603. 2 small-paned sash windows to each storey. Lobby entrance, with a
mid C19 enclosed porch: shallow-pitched slate roof, fluted barge-boards, door
with 6 flush panels. The frame is in 5 bays, with no structural chimney-bay,
and the present partition walls do not relate to the trusses. It is not clear
what the original layout was, and an earlier heating arrangement, ante-dating
the brick stack, seems likely. Main beams and posts are visible, and framing
in one upper room at the north end. The structure appears to be all of one
date. Roof of rather light-weight construction: clasped side purlins,
diminished principals, remains of windbraces. A small timber-framed wing at
the rear, with end chimney-stack, encased in white brick in C19, raised, and
slated, has remains of steep-pitched earlier roof by stack.
