SJ 97 NW PRESTBURY C.P. THE VILLAGE
5/206 & 6/206 National Westminster
Bank (formerly listed
as Priest's House)
Formerly vicarage (known as Priest's House) later cottages and now a
bank. C16 origins. Much earlier C17 work complete and sympathetic
restoration 1968-70. Timber framed on ashlar sandstone plinth.
Kerridge stone-slate roof and stone ridge. 2½ storey, near
symmetrical 5-bay front. 2nd and 4th bays are square projections
rising 2½ storeys with cross gabled roofs to dormers. Lower storey
has 2-light casements with applied lozenge shaped glazing. Above are
2-light windows with trefoil shaped heads, some with original lattice
leaded glazing. Fronts and sides of dormers have cross motifs in
small panels and single lights. Between these bays at 1st floor is a
balcony with flat shaped balusters and wainscotting behind. Other
bays use similar elements. Tiny circular light on the centre of the
ridge. Right gable has a tiebeam and collar truss and considerable
buff sandstone extensions to the rear.
Interior: Much altered to bank's needs but 2 cast iron firebacks
found in the restoration displayed in the banking hall. One is dated
1635 and with the arms of Charles I, and the other is late C17/C18,
Dutch in origin.
This building, replaced as vicarage by the Manor House (q.v.) in 1708,
has a distinctive and lopsided appearance and forms the focal point of
the village street.
