Listing Text

SW 87 SE
3/204 Trethewell, garden walls and gate-
piers immediately east of
Trethewell Farmhouse


Front garden and entrance gate-piers to house known as Trethewell. Circa early C18.
Red brick with some flarred headers, in Flemish bond. Slate rubble base. The wall
encloses a large rectangular garden in front of the house which is at the west end;
at the centre of the east end there is a gateway from the road.
The walls are lower at the front and they are ramped up to the higher side walls at
either end and ramped up to the pair of brick gate-piers at the centre. The gate-
piers are square-on-plan and have small stone lions sejant, each holding a shield;
the gates are C20 wrought-iron. The slate rubble base of the wall is exposed at the
front because the road is lower than the garden. The side walls are taller and have
saddle-back brick capping. The side walls ramp down to the house at the west end.
The house, Trethewell, is not included; it appears to be a circa mid C19 rebuild but
may incorporate some early C18 or earlier fabric. Pieces of C15 carved stone can be
seen incorporated into the C18/19 out-building behind to the west of the house.
The manor was purchased by Henry VI and flourished in C15 but was used as a farmhouse
by 1824 (S.M.R.).
