6/125 Rectory and garden wall to east

Rectory to Church of St Michael (qv), now private house and garden wall to east.
Circa C17 extended in early C19. Stone rubble with granite quoins and ashlar stone
to early C19 extension. Rag slate roof with hipped ends to C17 range with gable end
to rear wing on right and hipped end to rear wing on left. Brick stack on gable end
of rear wing on right, brick axial stack, originally rear lateral stack of left hand
room of C17 range and brick axial stack in left hand rear wing.
Plan: the original plan is uncertain. The C17 rectory may have comprised of a 2 room
and cross or through passage plan, the left hand room heated by a rear lateral stack
and the right hand room by an end stack. It is uncertain whether the rear right hand
wing was part of this earlier house or an extension, probably of 2-room plan, heated
by an axial stack and a gable end stack. In circa early C19 the house was remodelled
and a further range was added to the rear left. This range then accommodated the
main reception rooms, overlooking the garden with a large central room with canted
bay window; the passage in the earlier C17 range was widened to accommodate a stair
and the rear right hand wing became the service range with kitchen, back kitchen and
Exterior : 2 storeys. C17 range has a symmetrical 3 window front with renewed C20
16-pane horned sash on left and early C19 16-pane sash to right. 6-panel part glazed
door in centre with Doric columns to porch which has a hipped slate roof. Three 16-
pane sashes on first floor, the left hand sash window horned. Garden front of C19
range on left has a symmetrical 5 window front with dressed stone segmental arches to
ground and first floor openings and a central canted bay projection. 4 and 6 pane
sashes of circa mid C19 with original glass.
Interior largely complete with circa early C19 open string stair in entrance hall of
C17 range. Doors, doorcases, plaster cornices and shutters largely complete although
several chimneypieces have been replaced. Circa late C18 and mid C19 cast-iron
grates to fireplaces in 2 bedrooms.
Garden wall to east of rectory. Circa C18. Cob with stone rubble footings and slate
pitched roof. Forms enclosed walled garden.
