Rectory, now house. Probably C17/C18 origins, remodelled by B. Browning in 1834.
Squared coursed limestone with Welsh slate roof. Double-depth plan. 2 storeys.
Main front is a 6-window range of unhorned sash windows with glazing bars, and
rendered surrounds. First floor window to left of centre is blocked. Part-glazed
door to left of centre has moulded wood Doric surround with pediment. 2-window
range to right breaks forward slightly. Hipped roof with lateral brick stacks to
side walls. Mid C19 lean-to extension to rear left. Rear elevation is a 5-window
range of alternate large and small windows with rendered surrounds; the large
windows are sashes similar to the front elevation. Interior not inspected but
probably has staircase c.1834. Browning removed a gable in 1834 and
refenestrated the house at a cost of 140 pounds for materials and 588 pounds and
15 pence for alterations. Samuel Parr; the educationalist and political writer,
became Rector in 1789.
