- Meadow House
House, formerly vicarage. Some late medieval fabric survives, but heavily
remodelled in late C18. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob. Concrete tiled
roof to front of gable-ended main range, asbestos slate roof to rear, and slate roof
with hipped end to rear service wing.
Rendered axial stack, stack at left gable end; axial stack and demolished shaft to
stone rubble stack to end of service wing.
Plan: Main range conforms to a 3-room and wide cross-passage plan, the lower end to
left, with stack backing onto the passage which contains dog-leg staircase to the
rear. Long service range extends at right angles to rear creating T-shaped plan.
Part of a reused smoke-blackened ridge survives near the axial stack suggesting the
core of the building is medieval in origins. However, the axial stack forms a
solid wall partition and appears to have once formed a gable end, suggesting the
lower end including the wide passage were added as part of the C18 remodelling. The
medieval plan is therefore not recoverable; certainly the main range until the
circa 1920s extended a further 2 bays, including an additional entrance, at the
right gable end.
2 storeys. 4-window range. 16-paned sashes throughout, the ground floor sashes
rising virtually from ground level; all are hornless except at ground floor right
end. Off-centre doorway with shallow bracketted timber canopy, panelled doorcase
and raised and fielded 6-panelled door with decorative fanlight.
Interior: Late C18 and early C19 joinery mostly survives throughout including 6-
panelled doors to ground floor, some 2-panelled doors to upper storey, panelled
window shutters, and dog-leg staircase lit by semi-circular arched rear stair
window, with stick balusters and moulded and wreathed handrail ramped up to turned
newels. Decorative moulded plaster cornices to the principal 2 rooms each side of
the passage, the left-hand room retaining C19 marble chimneypiece.
Wide-span, roof structure, principally C18 with rough pegged trusses, but section of
smoke-blackened ridge purlin survives close to axial stack.
