Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

The Grange

Grange Road, Tettenhall

Farmhouse, now house.  Probably C17, altered and extended in late C18 - early C19; later alterations in later C19.  Timber framed core to house now mostly clad in red brick.

Comment:  One of a scatter of erstwhile farmhouses around the village of Tettenhall.  One or two other surviving houses seem to have been built, or to have been re-styled, in the early nineteenth century.  This work may have been done by industrialists fleeing the smoke of Wolverhampton for the fresh air of Tettenhall.  If so, they were early starters in the movement which reached flood-like proportions at the end of the century.
