24/20 The Rectory (formerly
5.2.52 listed under Front Street)
Rectory. Possibly medieval but mainly late C17 or early C18 and later C18.
Coursed clunch and reused limestone. Red brick and gault brick. Hipped
roofs, plain tiled, with ridge stacks. Half H plan with medieval part forming
a short wing on the north end. Main range two storeys and attic. Two later
C19 dormers with hipped roof with bargeboarding. Original first and ground
floor C18 openings now blocked or disturbed but shallow segmental header
arches visible. Present fenestration at first floor is now of three twelve
pane hung sashes. At ground floor a late C19 brick gabled porch. North wing
also of two storeys and attic. Gault brick incorporating some reused dressed
clunch and limestone. One similar dormer and two hung sashes, one of sixteen
panes above a tripartite hung sash. The south crosswing is similar except
that it does not incorporate stonework. The medieval part is on the north end
of the north crosswing. Mainly coursed clunch. The roof is plain tiled,
hipped, and probably C19. The front wall has a blocked early C18 first floor
window with fleurons used in the blocking. At ground floor is a doorway in
chamfered depressed arch and a loop window to the side. The rear wall was
rebuilt in C19 in gault brick. Interior: Little of the medieval part is
visible internally. Part has been sealed at both ground and first floors. It
is thought that there was an undercroft with hall above. The features which
indicate an early date are the thickness of the walls and the arch of the
opening. There is a C19 staircase in the main part of the home. C19 plans
and elevations for proposed alterations to the house, some of which were
carried out, are at the Rectory.
