7/64 The Old Rectory (Formerly
listed as Rectory).
House, formerly rectory. Built in 3 main stages: C15, mid C17 and early C19.
2 storeys and attics. The earliest range to rear has a timber-framed core.
C17 work in red brick, now painted along the south side wall. The entrance
front to east was stuccoed in C19, with band at lst floor and moulded cornice
at eaves; twin C17 Dutch gables. Slated roofs with internal chimneys of red
brick. Small-pane early C19 sash windows with cambered heads; 2 windows have
side-lights and hinged louvred shutters. Early C19 entrance doorway; slender
sunk panelled pilasters, moulded and dentilled open pediment and segmental
fanlight with radiating bars. C20 glazed door. To right of entrance is an
early C19 extension one window wide, added when the front elevation was
remodelled. A 3-bay C15 cross-wing is now at the rear. It has a crown-post
roof; 2 plain octagonal crownposts have 2-way bracing. A partition wall has a
blocked doorway with 4-centred arched head. The C17 range along the south
side probably stands on the site of the C15 open hall, whose rafters it reuses
in the present roof.
