Greenbank House

Conservation Project Grade 2** listed Greenbank House, was originally the residence of the Rathbone family. Its unique architecture has evolved from many additions to the original farmhouse William Rathbone IV bought in 1809. Assisted by Conservationists, Greenbank House has now been renovated to bring back its former glory. The house now accommodates teaching facilities.

The red sandstone western extension was added around 1868, with the conservatory added in 1896. The House was also used as a bar and function room in the 1980's.


Cast Iron Veranda

The cast iron veranda as seen on the photographs below, is believed to be attributed to the Coalbrookdale works that Hannah Rathbone's father was one of the founding directors.

The veranda was dismantled and sent away to be refurbished. The cast iron veranda was then reconstructed during the project as seen on the photographs below.
