The Old Rectory
House. Early C16 open-hall house which was floored over in
C16, faced and partly rebuilt in brick in mid C19 and
considerably altered in c.1965. Much of the original timber-
framed structure is still encased in brick. Graduated stone
slate roof. 5-bay 2-storey elevation. Projecting plinth.
Panelled door in bay 4 with moulded surround, overlight and
Gothic revival gabled porch. Two 3-light mullion and
transom windows to left and 4 sash windows on first floor.
Single-storey wing to left. Bay 5 virtually rebuilt in
1965. The principal features of interest are inside where a
considerable portion of the close-studded timber framing
survives on a brick plinth believed to be of c.1520. The
cross-frame at the north of the original hall rises through
2 storeys and less complete framing exists on the south and
west sides. One of the studs bears a carved colonnette. The
inserted floor which is notched onto the rails at first
floor level consists of heavily moulded beams, cross-beams
and joists. The entrance hall and drawing room are
completely panelled. C16 linen-fold panelling with briar
frieze. C17 carved cupboards, fireplace and overmantel (part
of fireplace 1894) are all elaborately carved. Measured
drawings by W.J. Smith in N.M.R.
