Listing Text


SD6691 BACK LANE, Sedbergh Town
162-1/21/395 (South side (off))
14/06/84 The Old Vicarage


Vicarage, now private house. Probably C17 or earlier, enlarged
and very much altered. White-painted coursed rubble, stone
slate roof. A long single-depth range on a roughly north-south
axis, in at least 3 builds. Main range of approximately 3
structural bays, with an early one-bay extension at the north
end and a C19 one bay addition at the south end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, with a west front of 1:5:1 windows. The
5-window main range has 3 small windows, a doorway and another
small window at ground floor. Doorway with a part-glazed door
and the windows mostly square, the 1st and 3rd being 6-pane
sashes and the 2nd and 4th casements with glazing bars, and
five 12-pane hornless sashes at 1st floor grouped 1:3:1; left
hand end has a large square chimney stack with a wide
cylindrical shaft, and on the ridge between the 4th and 5th
windows a lateral chimney stack which has coupled cylindrical
shafts. The extension to the left has a lean-to extension at
ground floor, a narrow 4-pane sashed window above this and a
gable chimney. The C19 addition to the right, which is
slightly higher, has a wide round-headed window with margin
panes, a narrow 6-pane window right of this with arched
glazing bars in the top panes, a 12-pane sashed window at 1st
floor; and a lateral chimney at the junction, with 3 clustered
cylindrical shafts. The rear (or east front) has a full-height
gabled turret to the centre of the main range, a bowed
full-height extension to its south bay, 2 very small windows
at 1st floor in line with its north chimney stack, and various
hornless sashed windows including one tripartite sash on each
floor of the C19 addition to the south end.
INTERIOR: very thick walls at ground floor of main range;
internal partitioning altered at various dates, so as to make
the evolution of the structure almost unintelligible.
