A Vicarage for a town centre parish built in 1923. Probably designed by the same architect as the adjoining Registry Office.


Built of squared limestone rubble with freestone quoins and dressings, probably Bath stone; Welsh slate roof. Two storeys set on a plinth and with a high roof. Subtle inter-war domestic style with some Gothic touches. Four bay house with the entrance in the second bay from the left, and the third bay is set forward with a wide gable over. The windows are single sash, paired sash, canted bay with four sashes and paired sash. All these are 6 over 6 sashes in plain reveals. The entrance bay is slightly Gothicised with the plank door framed together with a 2-light mullioned window with pointed heads to the lights and lattice casements. Tall hipped roof with two tall stone stacks with weathering. Paired sash in each floor to the gable end. Rear elevation similar but very plain.


Interior not seen at resurvey (November 1996).
