10/115 The Old Rectory


House, formerly rectory. Circa early C18, probably recasting of earlier
building, extended or partly rebuilt in circa mid C19. Red brick in various
bonds. Plain tile roof, hipped at centre and with parapeted gable-ended cross
wings and brick cogged eaves. Brick axial and gable-end stacks with square
yellow clay pots.

H-shaped on plan, the central range and the left (west) cross-wing appear to
be the original house, the cross wing extended by another outer range parallel
to it on the west side, and the right (east) cross-wing, circa mid C19, but
possibly a rebuilding of an earlier wing.

2 storeys. A symmetrical 1:5:1 window south front, with projecting gabled
cross wings to right and left, that to right with C19 polygonal conservatory
enclosing panelled double doors and with canted bay window above; gabled wing
on left has 3-light casement on ground floor, and canted ariel above. Centre
5-window range has brick platband at first floor level, cambered brick arch
window openings, with tall casements on right and tall 12-pane ground floor
sashed on left with small casements above; central pedimented doorcase with
glazed and panelled double doors. Right hand (east) return 3-windows, tall
sashed on ground floor, smaller above. Left hand (west) return, outer cross
wing, has various casements, the first floor with leaded panes. At rear,
gabled cross wings to right and left, that on right with casement windows and
panelled door on inner (east) side and covered walk from panelled back door
to outbuildings.

Interior: not inspected but some panelled window shutters observed.

Note: Salvin restored the Church of St Peter in 1848-9 and this may be
the date of the mid C19 work at the rectory.
