8/100 (The Old Vicarage), and adjacent
gateway and boundary wall
Former vicarage, now house. 1715, for Revd. John Maurice. Ham stone cut and squared, ashlar dressings; plain clay tiled
roof between coped gables; brick chimney stacks. 'L' plan; 2 storeys, 5 bay south elevation, at right angles to road.
Hollow-chamfered mullioned windows in chamfered recesses without labels; above all 2-light, with early iron-framed
opening lights and sure curl stays; below, later windows to match - large 2-light windows between bays 1/2 and 4/5: to
bay 3 a doorway with ovolo-aauld edge under curtailed hood, with 6-flush-panelled door, flanked by two C20 2-light
windows. Similar older windows in west gables both with labels. Return wing at rear with C18 casement windows, also a
lean-to extension. About 300mm from south-west corner of house a gateway with square stone piers ending in cornice caps
with block step and ball finials; adjoining wall about 900mm high to south and 1.5m high to north, returns eastwards
along Middle Street to mark south boundary, mostly in uncoursed rubble with simple ashlar copings, adding to the
setting of the house and the streetscene in this corner position. Faculty granted to demolish this house in 1828, then
said to be 'very dilapidated', but never executed: it ceased as a vicarage in that year. (VCH Vol III, 1974).
