PROJECT DETAILS Wrentham, Wrentham Hall, Church Street (WRE 025, TM 4885 8301) monitoring of ground works for side and rear extensions revealed remnants of the brick foundations of the mid 19th century rear part of what was then Wrentham Rectory which was partially demolished in 1954. While the core of the earliest part of the structure, which dates to the 18th century, survives as the building in its present form this phase of demolition followed by extensive works for extensions and a cellar in the mid to late 20th century caused substantial areas disturbance in the area of the new extensions and no finds or features of pre 18th/19th century date were revealed.
