LITTLE BLAKENHAM VALLEY ROAD TM 14 NW 7/64 The Old Rectory (Formerly listed as Rectory).

9.12.55 - II House, formerly rectory. Built in 3 main stages: C15, mid C17 and early C19.

2 storeys and attics. The earliest range to rear has a timber-framed core.

C17 work in red brick, now painted along the south side wall. The entrance front to east was stuccoed in C19, with band at lst floor and moulded cornice at eaves; twin C17 Dutch gables. Slated roofs with internal chimneys of red brick. Small-pane early C19 sash windows with cambered heads; 2 windows have side-lights and hinged louvred shutters. Early C19 entrance doorway; slender sunk panelled pilasters, moulded and dentilled open pediment and segmental fanlight with radiating bars. C20 glazed door. To right of entrance is an early C19 extension one window wide, added when the front elevation was remodelled. A 3-bay C15 cross-wing is now at the rear. It has a crown-post roof; 2 plain octagonal crownposts have 2-way bracing. A partition wall has a blocked doorway with 4-centred arched head. The C17 range along the south side probably stands on the site of the C15 open hall, whose rafters it reuses in the present roof.
