The Old Rectory
The address and the description shall be amended to read--
Rectory, now a private house. Early C18 and 1840's. Limestone rubble walling
with a few dressings and plain tile roof to the older part, coursed squared
limestone rubble with Bathstone dressings and Welsh slate roof to later part.
Development - A very early C18 plan house survives almost complete behind a
rectangular 1840's block which completely obscures the older part from the road.
The front block is two rooms in width with central axial stack and has a
corridor running across the back in front of the front wall of the old house.
This runs from entrance to stair. The rear block has parallel wings running
back from the obscured front.
Elevation - South front; two storeys, 4 windows. 12-pane sashes in stone
frames with drip moulds to ground floor only. Deep overhanging eaves, hipped
roof with central brick stack. East entrance front has 6-panelled door in
gabled porch with 12-pane sash over. To right of this in the older part of the
house is one 12-pane sash-with hood mould, in 1840'a alteration. West front
has a tall stair sash window of 15 panes, 6 over 9, also with hood mould. To
the right of this is what appears to be a truncated chimney breast. One bay
later projection from older part containing door with flat hood and small
casement above. Rear wing of two bays with original flat-faced mullion window.
North front has various two and 3-light-casements with small panes; at least
one appears original. There are also several blocked windows. Small modern
flat-roofed extension not of special interest. The paired wings are hipped at
the north end and have large brick ridge stacks. The tiles appear to be
replacements. The south facing dormers survive looking into the central valley
between the two sections.
Interior - Not available for inspection, but one stone mullioned window of the
original south front is revealed in the hall way.
