Rectory, now divided into 2 dwellings. 1873 by R.W. Drew of London for V.S.S Coles. Coursed and squared rubble with
freestone dressings, 'tile roofs, pennant dated 1873, tall stone stacks. High Victorian Tudor and neo-Early English

altar where the "lesser hours" are said and confessions sometimes heard". Two storeys and attic, taller gabled
cross-wing to north. Projecting south wing with hipped roof, half-hipped dormers over first floor windows. Irregular
windows of one, 2 and 3-lights, some with transoms and some with trefoiled heads, some lights with sash windows, some
lights with iron casements. East front with projecting oratory and adjacent stair-turret with conical roof; foiled
oculus to gable with buttress below, some stained glass. The principal door opening to north, moulted pointed-arch
freestone surround, paired panelled doors. Interior with cantilevered staircase, turned newels. (VCH, vol IV, 1978).
