FRODSHAM c.P. VICARAGE LANE
SJ 57 NW
(South Side)
2/110
The Old Vicarage.
II*
House, early C18, altered early C19 and extended at front and largely
refaced, probably by John Douglas 1872. Stone-dressed brick; tiled
roofs. 2 storeys plus attic. Jacobean. Cross-gable right; octagonal
entrance turret with spire (coved plaster eaves); recessed, lower,
service wing left with cross-gable at end. Mullioned windows of stone
and brick; leaded glazing; oak door in stone surround, mid C20 to wall
behind turret; panelled brickwork; plastered gables with brick
diapering. A well-composed vernacular revival reworking of an older
house; the expression and materials strongly suggest John Douglas as
architect.
Interior. Amongst many later C19 features of good quality, with some
C20 modifications which fully maintain the character, an early C18
oak-panelled room and the open-well oak stair with 3 turned balusters
per step and oak dado panelling are major items.
