Former rectory, now 2 houses. Early C14 refectory or infirmary

mid C18, and extensions and further alterations of 1832 by Thomas
Pilkington for Rev. W. Hildyard, in a Gothick style. Minor C20
alterations. Coursed limestone rubble, with ashlar quoins and
dressings, plain tiled roofs with single raised roll moulded
gable to right. 2 ridge and single gable moulded ashlar stacks.
C14 open hall with screens passage, reduced, probably by 2 bays
in mid C18 when it was also floored in, and extended eastwards in
1832. North front consists of 2 storey plus attics, irregular 4
bay front having plinth, string courses, plain parapet and 3
stepped buttresses. Off-centre gabled porch with rounded and
chamfered outer doorway with moulded hood, containing planked
double doors. To the right is a tall 2 light, possibly early
C16, transomed window with Caernarvon arched heads to the 2 tiers
of lights and in the top, having hood mould with zoomorphic
stops. To the right a 3 storey canted bay window, a stone
replacement of a simpler wooden one to the ground floor only,
having embattled parapet, tall ovolo moulded mullioned lights to
each floor. To the left are 2 storeys and 3 bays of the 1832
addition having 3 mullioned and transomed glazing bar casements
to the ground floor and 3 two light casements to the upper floor,
all with chamfered surrounds and moulded hoods. To the left a
recessed single storey service bay contains a mullioned and
transomed window. To the west gable end of the shortened hall
block is a 2 light window with pointed lights and circle over.
To first floor a 2 light window with chamfered surround and a
recut C14 3 light window with cusped ogee heads to the lights,
moulded surround and hood. In the gable a further 2 light window
with Gothick wooden cusping having pointed heads and hood. The
garden or south front has been regularised in 1832 of 3 principal
bays, the outer bays being advanced and separately gabled. To
either side of the middle bay are single half glazed doors with
Gothick tracery and hood moulds. At the centre is a C16 style
hall window matching that to the north. Above this is a smaller
matching C19 2 light window. In the gable over is a shield
bearing the arms of Rev. Hildyard and the date 1832. To either
side are single rectangular bay windows containing 5 light
windows with transomes, having elaborate carved Gothick cusping
and pointed heads. To first floor are single similar windows and
in the gables pierced quatrelobes. Interior. The internal
entrance door is planked with 2 original C14 strap hinges and
curved terminals, with 2 rails to strengthen the door, set in a
contemporary pointed and roll moulded door surround. 3 full bays
of the C15 open hall roof survive and consist of tie beams
defining the main bays with secondary bays defined by short
hammer beams, with curved cavetto moulded bracing. The hammer
beams are supported on grotesque corbels. The roof has moulded
collars, butt purlins and large wall plate. Set in the hall is a
mid C18 imperial stair with turned balusters and panelled square
newels. At the service end of the hall are 3 chamfered and
pointed doorways with reset hood moulds and zoomorphic stops,
probably the original screens passage service openings. The hall
also contains a mid C18 carved chimneypiece. The lounge, added
in 1832, has Gothick details including plaster cornice, ceiling
centrepiece and fireplace. Source: D. L. Roberts, RAI
