History

Probably early-mid C19 range, comprising house and shop. Gable dormers added in later C19. Storeyed wings to rear now linked by a C20 flat roofed addition.

Wenallt is marked on the Tithe map of the parish, 1841, and recorded as part of the Cae Nest estate, owned by R A Poole Esq. and occupied by William Pugh.

Exterior

Two storeys with attic range with storeyed wings to rear linked by a flat roofed addition between. Built of well coursed and dressed stone masonry. Slate roof has dressed stone stacks with dripstones and capping, front pitch has gabled dormers with slate hung cheeks and rear pitch has velux windows.

Range of 4 unequally spaced windows: 2 widely spaced 12-pane sashes to 1st floor left, and similar window in each bay to right; narrower window over doorway to house, directly to the right of the shop-front, which is almost central to the whole range. It has a central door flanked by large windows under a moulded fascia with console brackets. To its left is a 2-pane fixed light window. Modern windows in dormers.

The storeyed wings to rear have advanced verges and dressed stone gable stacks, scattered fenestration in the end walls and are linked by a flat roofed addition with modern casement windows.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a good C19 purpose built commercial and domestic range, a well detailed building of high quality stonework which forms an important component of the village.
