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.
