The Old Vicarage
TL 23 SW 1/20 27.5.54
Probably earlier C16, altered. Originally 3-bay, lobby entrance house type.
East (chamber) bay retains internal remains of windows to former east gable
and fireplaces on ground and first floors. Lobby entrance with opposing
staircase, whose reconstruction circa 1925 probably involved the removal
of the original hall fireplace. The hall bay was probably altered front
and rear during the C18. The western bay was rebuilt circa 1925 and the
house refenestrated at the same time. A modern kitchen wing has been added
at the east end. Two storeys. Three window front with one window projecting
wings at either end. Timber-framed with panel infill. The former C16 entrance
bay still retains its first floor jetty at side and rear. Thatch roof,
gabled at west end bay and hipped at east end bay. Moulded brick, modern
stacks. Lobby entrance with blocked, 4 centred arched window with 2 lights
at first floor. Internal, former gable windows of east bay mullioned with
ovolo mouldings and stay bars. Two, three and four light casement windows
of circa 1925 with leaded lights. C18 architraved doorway with dentil cornice
and panelled door. Interior with chamfered ceiling beams with tongue stops.
Brick fireplaces; ground floor with C17 segmental brick arch replacing former
lintel; first floor with original; chamfered 4 centred brick arch. (VCH
