7/41 The Old Vicarage and attached
08/12/55 walls, gates and gatepiers
(Formerly listed as The Old

Vicarage, now house. Early C18 incorporating earlier features, altered and
extended late C19. Marlstone ashlar and squared coursed rubble;
Stonesfield-slate roof with ashlar stacks. L-plan with service range. 2 storeys
plus attic. Left part of ashlar front has a symmetrical 5-window arrangement of
tall 12-pane sashes, and has a central arched doorway in a stone Baroque
surround with large imposts and a heavy double-stepped keyblock. Steep-pitched
roof with 3 hipped roof dormers is hipped to left but extends to right over a
wide blank section which has only one blind window at each floor. A lower C19
service range extends to left of main range. Right gable wall (with parapet),
and principal windows at rear are C19 and have limestone dressings; rear wing,
returning from hipped end, has also been extended in C19. Tall hipped-roofed
stair tower, in angle of ranges, has early-C18 window openings matching those at
the front, but the lowest window has a stone mullion, as has a cellar window in
the rear wing. Interior: intersecting moulded beams in hall and a stop-chamfered
door frame in the attic may be C17, and a chamfered Tudor-arched stone doorway
in the cellars is C16/C17; early-C18 work includes a fine oak dogleg stair,
rising to attics, with moulded closed string, turned balusters, and a newel of 4
clustered balusters. A first-floor room is lined with re-used C17 oak panelling,
and there is a complete C18 panelled room at ground floor with a moulded cornice
above fielded panelling. A fine C18 panelled cupboard, with a dentil cornice and
concave sections breaking back from an arched central section, has been re-set
in a first floor corridor. Heavy butt-purlin roof. In the cellar, a re-set
medieval stone corbel of a muzzled dog. Marlstone garden walls, with flat stone
copings, extend from right end of house approximately 25 metres along Mill Lane,
ramping up twice and incorporating a Tudor-arched stone doorway, also across
forecourt incorporating square ashlar gatepiers, with stone vase finials and
wrought-iron gates, and extend approximately 20 metres to east of gates.
