7/116 The Old Rectory


Large parsonage house, 1896, by T M Lockwood & Sons for 1st Duke of
Westminster. Stone-dressed red brick walls with blue diapers, on
stone plinth. Grey slate roof, hipped to right (west) but with
sandstone-coped gables, left, and to garden, south, with ball finials
on ridge-stones and kneelers. Central stone-banded brick chimney with
moulded stone cap. 2 storeys and attics, 3 bays. Stone mullioned and
transomed windows with bronze casements: leaded glazing removed except
to attic windows. Ornate 9-panel oak double doors in simplified Doric
case of yellow sandstone (probably from Manley quarry).
A rich interior. Open-well newel staircase with heavy turned
balusters; finely made 6 panel doors. The dining room contains an
ornate chimney piece, probably by Lockwood, oak wainscotting and
panelled ceiling of oak and plaster. The exterior, for Eaton Estate
buildings, is severe in expression.
