5/5 The Old Rectory
on E of parish church


Rectory, now a house. C18 extended to both sides in early C19.
Brick colourwashed with grey brick chimneys to newer parts.
Hipped slate roofs. An irregular 2 storeys large house facing S
with a formal garden front facing N over the Ash Valley. The
highest part is a 3 windows, 2 storeys and basement part in the
middle of the N front. This and the lower part on the S side of
it were probably the extent of the house in the C18. The N part
has flat gauged arches and, recessed sash windows with 6/6 panes,
and a modillioned cornice. The S part has 2 sash windows under
gauged arches, a triple window on the right. The narrower window
may be in the position of the original door. In the early C19 a
2 storey W wing was added which is slightly lower than the centre
part in the N front but much higher than the S part. This has 2
windows and the entrance on the right. Recessed sash windows
under segmental gauged arches with 6/6 panes. Wide eaves
overhang with plastered soffit. A flat topped, heavy Tuscan
porch with columns, pilasters and full entablature. 6-panel
half-glazed door. At the same time a narrower 2 storeys bay was
added on the E side set back on each front. 1 window to each
storey. All the windows have louvred shutters. A picturesque
C18 and C19 rectory. Part of the group around the parish church.
