- II

House, latterly divided, now disused. Probably late C16 or early C17,
remodelled in the late C19. Timber framed with red brick nogging, partly
refaced or rebuilt in red brick. Slate roof, hipped to east. Framing:
small square panels. L-plan. Two framed bays with rear wing of framed
bay. Two storeys. North front: integral brick end stack to right and
to rear of wing. C19 one-and 2-light cast-iron lozenge-pattern casements,
4 to first floor and 2 to ground floor. Segmental-headed boarded door
off-centre to right with gabled porch. Left-hand return front with 2-
light cast-iron casements to each floor at left and segmental-headed boarded
door to right. Rendered right-hand gable end, with evidence of collar and
tie-beam truss beneath and pairs of purlin ends. C19 one-storey gabled
wash house at rear. Interior: left and right-hand ground-floor rooms
with deep-chamfered ceiling beams running front to back. Right-hand room
has large open fireplace to right with moulded surround. Dog-leg oak
staircase to left of entrance. Left-hand ground-floor rear room: deep-
chamfered ceiling beam and chamfered girding beam with broach stops.
Fireplace has (probably reset) C17 deep stone lintel with which carved
strapwork ornament, moulded lower edge (formerly returned to jambs) and
remains of flanking chamfered rustication. C19 cast-iron range. Collar
and tie-beam roof truss between front range and rear wing, with jowl posts.
This house, formerly known as Dinthill Grange, was once the family home of
the Purcells and the Owens. The fireplace lintel has been reset, but
probably originates from the house which has been much rebuilt. Tradition-
ally, however, it comes from another house nearby which has now been
demolished. H.E. Forrest, Some Old Shropshire Houses and their Owners
(1924), pp. 25-35.
