Find accommodation in


Probably early-C19; now a garage but possibly a coach-house originally. There was formerly an attached building which was demolished in the 2nd half of the C20. It included accommodation, but may have been the original stables.

Penegoes Rectory is the site of the birthplace of Richard Wilson (1713-82), the foremost landscape painter of Wales in the C18. His father, John Wilson of Trefeglwys, was Rector of Penegoes, but Richard, the 3rd son, spent much of his youth at Leeswood Hall in Mold, the family home of his mother, Alice Wynne. It was his grandfather, Sir George Wynne, who helped him train as a portrait painter in London. Wilson gradually turned to landscape painting, spending his foremost years in Rome, returning to London in 1757 where he was a founder member of the Royal Academy, and its librarian from 1776. He retired to Mold, where he later died.


Outbuilding of shaley rubble stone under a renewed slate roof. It has 2 pairs of full-height boarded doors leading to garages. The R-hand gable is boarded and has a loading door. The L-hand gable end has brick quoins (where the attached building was taken down) and a rendered gable. The rear has a single ventilation slit on the L side.


The 3-bay roof has tie beams with raking struts.
