671-1/4/100 The Old Vicarage
(Formerly Listed as:


Vicarage for Church of St Michael nearby, now private house.
1809 incorporating part of the C18 vicarage for Reverend
Joseph Hudson; rear 1890 extensions. Flemish bond brickwork on
chamfered plinth (all dressings of calciferous sandstone).
Hipped graduated greenslate roof; end brick chimney stacks.
2 storeys, 4 bays, single-depth plan, with rear extensions.
Off-centre top-glazed panelled door and overlight in Ionic
porch with dentilled cornice. Tall sash windows, those on
ground floor almost level with ground, all with glazing bars,
in brick reveals with stone sills and flat brick arches.
INTERIOR: panelled shutters and panelled doors; black marble
fireplace in principal room.
HISTORY: In 1828, the vicar, Joseph Hudson, stated that he had
added the new facade in 1809 (Cumbria County Record Office
D/Hud/13/40/2; plans for the rear extension by J S Seymour are
in CRO, Ca/E4/14172).
Previous list description states that this was on the site of
the Roman fort at Stanwix, but it is just outside the west
wall of the fort and built partly over the infilled fort
ditch. The further rear stable/byre range, converted to St
Michael's Parish Centre in 1983 has extensive alterations.
