The Vicarage


Vicarage. Late C18. Coursed limestone rubble, with Ham Hill
stone coping, eaves cornice, raised window surrounds and
doorcase; rendered to the right of the ground-floor of the
south front, probably inside a former conservatory; slate roof
with brick stacks to gable ends. Double-depth plan.
The south front is 2 storeys; symmetrical 3-window range. All
windows are horned 6/6-pane sashes, except that above the
door, which is without horns. Steps up from the garden across
a stone-paved area lead to a Tuscan-style doorcase with an
open pediment above a plain semicircular fanlight and a late
C19 four-panel door, glazed to the top and heavily-reeded
panels below, with concave corners. The rear (north) facade
has a repositioned wide left-of-centre C15 door with carved
Gothic panels with ogee tops, set in a moulded frame. There
are 2 small gabled dormers, three 6/6-pane sashes to the first
floor and one to the ground-floor left; four c1910 tall narrow
windows to the right of the door.
INTERIOR: mainly late C18 joinery with early and late C19
fireplaces. The inside of the Gothic back door is heavily
planked and has a great lock; below the room to the right is a
large cellar with a wide segmental arch to the vaulted
ceiling, which may be brick; the rear end of the cellar is
partitioned off by full-height railings with a lockable gate.
