7/98 The Old Rectory
- II
Company headquarters, formerly rectory. Mid C16 with major alterations of
several periods. 2 storeys. C16 parlour wing to right, and service range,
(probably C18), to left. The central hall range was rebuilt c.1930. Pre-C20
work is timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roofs with axial and external
chimneys of red brick. Mainly early C19 sash windows with small panes. The
garden elevation of the cross-wing has two C18 sash windows with segmental
heads; in the centre of this wing is a small 2-storeyed gabled projection,
perhaps C16, and probably a staircase wing. In the cross-wing are moulded 1st
and attic floor joists and good close-studwork; the attic floor was inserted
c.1600. The rebuilt hall range is of rendered masonry with limestone windows
and entrance doorway in the Elizabethan manner; the 1st floor is partly
constructed of reused C16 moulded floor joists as in the parlour. The Revd.
George Drury (1819-1895) was the central figure in a national scandal,
involving a burial at the adjoining parish of Akenham, while he was the
Incumbent here.
