WYNNSTAY

A landmark building, Wynnstay was designed in 1913 by Percival Hill Mitchelson for Mr Gregory, the Messenger of the Court who lived here with his wife until 1931. This attractive and deceptively asymmetrical house has large bay windows and a broad veranda flowing into the garden. It was bought by the Municipality in 1970 to be demolished for the M6 motorway, but was later leased to the Children's Theatre instead.
