The parsonage was built in 1846, possibly to the design of John Buckler who designed the neighbouring church of St John the Baptist in 1843. It is now privately owned.


Restrained Elizabethan style, fine coursed masonry, slate roof, stone parapet and kneelers to gable ends, and circular buff terracotta chimneys which are grouped to give picturesque effect. Subrectangular plan with L shaped service range attached to the NW side, 2 storeys. The main elevation faces S towards the church. It is symmetrical with a central chimney rising from the gable and a central first-floor stone oriel with a moulded base which is flanked by 6-pane windows with label moulds. There is a central entrance with overlight flanked by tall tripartite windows. Right hand return elevation is gabled and has a window with label-mould in the upper floor and a bay window to the ground floor. Rear elevation has twin gabled roofs. The service wing is a low range which partly encloses a courtyard at the rear of the house.


Interior not inspected at the time of the 1997 survey.
