The Old Rectory (No. 1)


House, formerly rectory. Two main building periods C16 and c.1840. Altered
1926. C16 house brick with gabled roof. Single east-west range. Two storeys
and attic. Extensions on both sides have meant that little of this house
remains. The principal facade was probably on the north side with a
cross-passage between the domestic and family part of the present house. In
c.1840 a large addition was made on the south for family and guests. Brick,
rendered. The roofs are of slate, gabled, and embattled in 1926. (see photo
of early C20 in possession of owners). In c.1840 the principal facade was
changed to the west side. Two storeys. Asymmetrical elevation in Tudor Gothic
style with casements with margin-lights in square heads with dripmoulds. The
gabled porch has a pointed outer arch. There is a loggia on the south side of
the house. Inside: A hearth with a moulded bressumer including part of a rose
remains as does a ceiling with stop chamfered main beam. Another main beam has
wave and hollow moulding. A room within the C16 range has raised and fielded
panelling, probably C18 with alterations of early C20. The c.1840 additions
were enriched with elaborate plaster ceiling in c.1926.
