Upper Church House


Former rectory of St. John's Church, now a house. Early C17. 3-cell lobby-
entrance form. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and rendered with double
Roman tiles. An internal chimney-stack with saw tooth shafts on a square
base. Small-paned 3-light metal casement windows to both storeys, those on
the ground storey deeper than those above. 2 high gabled dormers with similar
2-light windows, the ridge of their roofs level with the ridge of the main
roof. A single-storey fully enclosed gabled porch with a 2-light window
above. A lean-to extension on the east side. Frame in 6 bays, including the
remains of a chimney-bay. A 2-bay room to each side of the stack, with heavy
chamfered main beams and scroll-stops with groove. An open fireplace with
plain timber lintel and jambs of whitewashed stone blocks to the central room.
The unheated one-bay room at the east end, which contains the stair, has
studding and ceiling exposed: plain, unchamfered joists. Both sill-beams are
prominent, and rest on brick plinths, suggesting that this bay is an
extension, but this is not borne out by the frame above, which has no
evidence of an obvious join. On the upper storey, cambered tie-beams with
arched braces removed; several blocked original diamond-mullioned windows.
Roof renewed.
