House. Late C18, altered in C19 and C20. Red brick in Flemish
bond, with ashlared stucco and paint at front, roof concealed
by parapet. The main range forms an almost rectangular plan
facing E, but extending slightly further to the back in the
left half, with an internal stack at each end. C19 and C20
extension to left. C20 single-storey lean-to to rear of this
and left part of main range, roofed with machine-made red clay
EXTERIOR: 4-window range of C20 casements in original
apertures, and blocked window aperture above door. Moulded
6-panel door with plain overlight placed centrally in combined
elevation. Restored moulded portico on 2 wooden fluted Ionic
columns, repaired and restored 1987, with restored bases and
original capitals. One stone step, wrought-iron bootscraper
behind left column. The elevation of the original build is of
ashlar plaster, with a moulded cornice and plain parapet.
Gambrel roof with parapet gables. The left extension is
painted on the front only, with a plain parapet. Mansard roof.
The right elevation is plastered. The left elevation has on
the ground floor one original sash of 8+8 lights with
segmental brick arches, the latter covered with perforated
zinc on apparently original horizontal iron bars.
First floor, two C20 sashes of 6+6 lights with plain brick
heads. Plaster band as at front; plain parapet. The rear
elevation has on the ground floor one original sash of 8+8
lights with segmental brick arch, and three C20 French windows
in early C19 apertures. A short stub wall at the N end retains
the profile of a former early C19 verandah with tented canopy,
and marks on the brickwork indicate the profile at the other
INTERIOR: retains 3 sets of early C19 folding shutters inside
the French windows, several 6-panel doors, and an early C19
stair with mahogany handrail, 2 stick balusters to each tread,
turned pine newels and moulded tread ends. This stair appears
to have been removed from its original position rising from
the front door to its present position against the rear wall
in the late C19, at which time the window above the door was
blocked, and some ground-floor internal doorways were moved.
An early photograph shows the brick left wing as of one
storey, with a plain parapet at the level of the sills of the
first-floor windows of the main block.
The OS First Edition of 1873 shows it as The Vicarage, with a
large garden extending to the S, with direct access to the
