The Vicarage


House, later the vicarage to St Mary's Church, Crown Street
(qv). c1804, when the house figures in the Rate Books for the
first time. Probably by Francis Sandys, to whom the house
belonged until at least 1816. Red brick; shallow-pitched slate
roof with a parapet and moulded brick dentil cornice. 4
gable-end chimney-stacks with plain rectangular shafts.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar; 3 window range: all tripartite
sashes with segmental heads in shallow reveals with flat
gauged arches, the central windows on the ground and 1st
storeys 12-pane and on the 2nd storey 6-pane. A central
doorway with a plain rectangular fanlight has a heavy
projecting Tuscan porch with plain columns.
INTERIOR: cellar not inspected. Plain interior. Ground storey
rooms have reeded plaster cornices; the principal rear room
has a fine canted bay window with 3 full-length sash windows
and internal shutters with moulded sunk panels. An original
fireplace surround has fluted columns and a series of small
ornate medallions across the architrave. The stair, with stick
balusters and a ramped and wreathed handrail, has a balustrade
along the landing.
In the front attic the room to the south of the entry has one
cross wall rendered and lined to simulate stone; slight
changes in the outer brickwork in the same area suggest the
possibility that this was initially an outside wall and that
the house was extended later.
