Greenhead House at the north-west corner of Wall village green is an altered bastle. It has thick rubble walls. Traces of another, probably earlier, bastle are built into the west end of the house. A date stone with the year 1631 is placed over the stone porch. Some of the windows were added later in the 17th or 18th century. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
