2/139 The Old Vicarage

Detached house, formerly Woodbury Salterton vicarage. Circa 1845. Brick-gabled-
end slate roofs with deeply overhanging eaves. Double-depth plan with principal
front room on either side of entrance hall which has 2-storey porch. Small,
service rooms, in rear range with narrower span parallel roof with cross gables to
Front: symmetrical; 3 bays, the centre bay projecting and with wavy cusped
bargeboarding to gable end; 2:4:2 pane oriel windows above central entrance which
is a chamfered arch, the hood mould of which takes in the 2 flanking square-headed
lancets. Side bays with 2-light casement window to 1st floor, and bay windows
below, under hipped roofs, with 3-light tall casements with stone transoms.
Another of these bays to the right-hand elevation of front range, with 2-light
window above, and a lancet to gable wall. Casement windows elsewhere, with some
late C20 alterations. The vicarage was designed to group picturesquely with the
contemporary school and parish church. [see engraving reproduced in Ursula W
