Old Church House
- II

House probably originally had some connection with the church as it borders on the
churchyard. Early-mid C19 heavy remodelling of a C17 or earlier house. Plastered
walls which may incorporate some cob. Low pitch nipped slate roof with overhanging
eaves. 2 rendered brick rear lateral stacks.
Plan: L-shaped plan of 2 principal rooms, left-hand one larger and projecting
slightly, with central narrow stairhall. C18 or C19 small outbuilding, reputedly
stable, built onto front of left-hand room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with left-hand side projecting
slightly. First floor window to front of projection and one on each floor of right-
hand part - all early to mid C19 Gothic-style 3-light wooden mullions with
cinquefoiled heads and square hoodmoulds. C19 plank door on inner face of
projection. Lower outbuilding at front of this side has plank door. The rear wall
of this addition (facing the churchyard) re-uses a medieval 2-light window with
crude pointed heads. The main part of the house on this side has 2 windows on each
floor of similar design to the front.
Interior: left-hand room has fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel and dressed
stone jambs.
