2/122 The Church (or vestry) Room

Church or vestry room, formerly part of a dwelling. Possibly C16 or earlier,
refurbished in the early C19, with later modifications. Plastered cob, on stone
footings; gabled-end concrete tiled roof. Old photographs show this to have been
part of a larger building; it was possibly originally the service end of a 3-room,
cross-passage house, although set physically higher than the now demolished hall
and inner room. Single storey.
Front: 2 round-headed 24-pane hornless sash windows with a round-headed doorway to
the left, the door late C20, the fanlight with glazing bars; 3 buttresses. Right-
hand end stack with renewed brick shaft.
Interior: false ceiling obscures the roof structure which may be ancient. The
church room is situated on a prominent central village site.
