3/59 Wrenshall Cottages


A pair of estate cottages, now privately owned. Dated 1899 on front. Red
brick, partly finished with tile-hanging and partly with mock timbering.
Plaintiled roofs. One-and-a-half storeys: half-H form, with a hipped, single-
storey projection from each gable containing an entry and porch. A chimney-
stack with 4 hexagonal shafts to each wing, and 2 smaller stacks with similar
shafts to the central range. Brick ground storey: all the windows are
original casements with a single horizontal bar. Each wing has a jetty with
carved supports to the first floor, tile-hanging to the upper storey, and a 4-
light oriel window with a coved timber base. The gable projects slightly at
eaves level, and the apex has mock timbering, carved barge-boards and a
hanging finial. The centre has a lean-to veranda roof supported on posts
along the ground storey, and 22-light casement windows to the upper storey
with gablet roofs finished with barge-boards and finials to match the gables.
The only example in Stanton of the ornate cottages built on the estate of John
Martineau of Walsham-le-Willows in the later C19. Formerly attached to
Wrenshall Farm.
