22/3 The Old Vicarage


Vicarage, now two houses. Probably 1770, with mid C19 addition and C20
conversion. Coursed squared rubble and ashlar, graduated stone slate roof.
2 storeys, 3 bays, with projecting added bay, right. Chamfered quoins.
West front: the original range has a central round-headed window on each
floor, with glazing bars and keyed stone surrounds, flanked by corniced
Venetian windows; ground floor windows have Tuscan columns with ashlar
panels below; first floor sill band. A panel below the central first-floor
window has the inscription: "Edes Hasce Sacerdotales/ H.Tennant, A.M./
Hodie Vicarius Extruxit/ AD MDCC_XII"; the fifth letter of the date has been
erased, probably "L", the date originally 1770. Projecting added bay to
the right: inserted doorway, left. Rear: the original range has 5 windows
to each floor, all sashes with glazing bars in architraves with first-floor
sill band. The projecting added bay to left has two similar windows to
each floor and has chamfered quoins. Right return, the main facade of the
C19 house: a glazed door in recessed porch which is flanked by Tuscan
columns with cornice and entablature; sashes to left, ground and first
floor, and above the entrance; inserted window to right of entrance.
Interior: A large C19 staircase hall is built against the right-hand
window of the original house. Henry Tennant was Rector of Arncliffe 1765-
1779 and built the house just before his brother, John built the Chapel
House, Kilnsey (1783) in similar style. Whitaker (c1800) refers to " the
shell of a handsome vicarage erected by the last incumbent", suggesting
that the house was either not completed or was unoccupied. The extension
was probably built after 1835 by Canon Boyd. T.D. Whitaker, History of
Craven, (c1805) p.580
