1478/4/50 St Anne's Rectory


G.V. II*

Rectory. 1882. J.M. and H. Taylor. Brick with clay tile
roof. Irregular 2 and 3-storey building in a free Gothic
style with gabled crosswings flanking a central section with
a half-octagonal stair tower in the left angle. Ground and
first floor bands. Between the crosswings is an open porch
in the right angle with hipped roof. 6-light mullion and
transom stair window on the first floor. Gabled oriel window
to left crosswing rising from a weathered buttress flanked
by 2 segmental-headed recesses. A sash window in the right
crosswing has a carved tympanum panel below a relieving
arch. Windows are generally 4-pane sashes. Banded fishscale
roof tiles. Elaborate brick chimney stacks and a conical
stair tower roof (echoing that of the church) add to the
already interesting skyline.

The interior is of equal variety and quality. Pitch pine
panelling, doors, dado rails and fitted furniture remain
in most of the principal rooms. Octagonal dining room with
cast-iron corner fireplace which has Delft tiles and
panelled overmantel with stained glass window. Similar
fireplace and overmantel in the study, which also has fitted
furniture and a small stone window above with stained and
patterned glass. An inglenook fireplace formerly existed in
the main reception room but has been removed. Pitch pine
staircase leading to a landing from which a spiral stair
gives access to the top storey. Landing arcade supported on
circular pier. The large staircase window has stained and
painted glass dated 1882. Stained and painted glass panels in
some other windows.

The rectory is not only of fine quality in itself but forms an
outstanding group with the adjacent Church of St Anne, (qv),
of similar date and by the same architects.
