It has deep gabels with half timber detail. There is corner detail in a baronial style with an ogee geaded window and canopy with niche above. There are dressed stone entrances and mullioned windows, some with leaded light glazing and agee moulding.  The Stanbury Garage car sales showroom is on Vicarage Hill. Wrens alehouse and the Country House Inn were located on the site where Wreneaton now stands. A dame school was run at Wreneaton until the 1930s.
