Rectory, now private house. Probably late C17, altered in C18 and C19. Brick,
mostly covered by painted stucco (facade) and roughcast, with roof of red tiles
and some blue slate, brick chimney stacks. H-plan formed by double-depth centre
range under a 2-span roof, with 2-unit crosswings. Two and 3 storeys, 2:3:2 bays
(including wings); symmetrical; the 2 storey 3-bay centre has a full-width flat-
roofed porch with a central round-headed doorway flanked by 12-pane unhorned
sashed windows, a cornice and parapet; three 12-pane sashed windows at 1st
floor; and a balustraded parapet. The tall 3-storey 2-bay wings have similar
sashed windows at ground and 1st floors, one 6-pane sash at 2nd floor, and
pedimented gables. All the windows at ground and 1st floor level have C19
wooden hoods. Chimney between the ridges, very large external chimney at left

the north wing, 12-pane sashes at 1st floor (those in the wings also with hoods),
6-pane sashes at 2nd floor of the wings, and a balustraded parapet over the
centre, like that at the front. (A ballroom and large conservatory attached to
the south wing in the early C19 were demolished earlier in the C20.) Interior:
entrance hall with 2 columns on the line of the former front wall, and diagonal
rear corners; to the rear of this, an C18 open-well staircase with open string,
scrolled brackets, 2 turned balusters per tread, and ramped handrail with
wreathed curtail; in front room of left wing, a brick inglenook fireplace with
unusual wooden surround of fluted pilasters (with berries carved in the upper
half), and muntin-and-rail panelled overmantel, the top decorated with C17
strapwork, and built-in bookcase to the left of this with similar surround; to the
rear of this room, a C17 staircase doglegged to the full height, with closed

the roof have exposed principal rafters with 2 pegs visible halfway up. History:
