13/46 The Old Vicarage


Vicarage and stable, now private house. Circa 1685 with extension c1734; late
C18 and Early C19 alterations. Whitewashed clay walls on large footing stones,
extension of brick and cobbles; graduated sandstone slate roof, whitewashed
brick chimney stacks. Original house 2 storeys, 2 bays of cruck construction,
higher extension of 2 storeys, 2 bays. Street facade: original house left has
ground floor casement window with C19 oriel 2-pane sash window above. Small
upper-floor glazed opening to left has external wooden shutter; this was
originally the stable end. End wall collapsed in 1978 and has been rebuilt.
Extension has sash windows with glazing bars, painted stone sills. End wall has
pointed cast-iron casement with intersecting glazing bars, similar window
above. 2 false pointed moulded arches, are explained by this wall facing the
churchyard, so this would give the illusion of part of a ruined church. Rear
wall has outshut with C20 porch, C20 door and windows. Interior of clay house
has 2 pairs of full crucks. Before 1685 the vicar lived in the tower at the
east end of the church which was described in 1703 as being ruinous.
