History

The main part of the present house dates to the early C19 but the rear wing predates this and was probably built in C18. In the Census Returns of the parish, 1841, the rectory and its accompanying 14 acres(5.67 hectares) of land formed part of the glebe land in the parish and was occupied by Reverend John Owen, Rector, along with 3 female servants, one male servant and a secretary.

Exterior

Georgian style rectory built in two phases to an L-shaped plan. The main house a 2 storey, 3 window range to the E; the original house now forming a service wing at the rear SW corner. The main house is built of rubble masonry with smooth rendered elevations; the rear elevation is slate hung. Shallow hipped slate roof has rectangular stacks on the ridge; brick built, with capping. The principal elevation faces E, a 3 window range with central doorway in a flat roofed porch with shallow parapet. The porch has double, panelled, doors. Windows are 16-pane hornless sashes with fine glazing bars; slate sills. The return elevations have similar detailed windows; ground floor has 2 windows (the S return has a blind window to the front (E), 1st floor has single windows to the rear (W) rooms. The rear elevation has a large, 30-pane, central stair window.
The rear, service wing was remodelled when the main house was built in the early C19. A 2 storey range built of rubble masonry, mortared; shallow pitched roof of small old slates, grouted; large rubble stack at W gable. The entrance is offset to the far L (E) of the range and opens from the courtyard to the rear of the main house. A boarded door in a gable porch with slate roof on rubble piers. Above the door is a small paned hornless sash window, 16-pane, set directly under the eaves. There is a small opening, a ventilation grille, offset to the R and a single 16-pane ground floor window offset to the W end of the rear (S) wall. Beyond the present extent of the wing to the R (W) are the remains of a further bay, now roofless; there is no internal access to this bay; doorway offset to R (W) end, blocked ground and 1st floor windows to L.
