Right and left hand end gable walls with window; the right-hand end has a late-C20
ground-floor window in addition. The C19 rear wing is set well back and the right-
hand (south) front faces the church and is treated as a significant facade : 4-

sashes; the left-hand bay projects with 2 set-offs and a lean-to porch with 2

crenellated open turret.
Interior: open well staircase with stick balusters; plain carpentry details; the
fireplaces are late-C20 replacements. The Old Rectory stands in extensive grounds
and groups well with the parish church. Many of the outbuildings, including the
