There were a great many repairs to The Glebe House in 1911 following mineral mining underneath it which caused subsidence. In spite of this the former manse survives as a well-proportioned building largely in its original form.
According to the Heritor's Records repairs to the manse were also carried out in 1875. The accounts mention Peddie and Kinnear, who also carried out work on Cockpen Parish Church (see LB780) a few years later, however the extent of their work is not detailed.
Description updated in 2019 to include name of architect.
