Probably designed by the then incumbent, Reverend William
Haslam, who was a friend of the noted ecclesiological
architect William White and who designed the Church of St
George(qv): this vicarage reflects the influences of White and
other ecclesiological architects such as Street who both had
worked in Cornwall by the early 1850s. Included for group
