13/46 The Old Vicarage

30/4/80 II

Vicarage and stable, now private house. Circa 1685 with extension c1734; late C18 and Early C19 alterations. Whitewashed clay walls on large footing stones, extension of brick and cobbles; graduated sandstone slate roof, whitewashed brick chimney stacks. Original house 2 storeys, 2 bays of cruck construction, higher extension of 2 storeys, 2 bays. Street facade: original house left has ground floor casement window with C19 oriel 2-pane sash window above. Small upper-floor glazed opening to left has external wooden shutter; this was originally the stable end. End wall collapsed in 1978 and has been rebuilt.

Extension has sash windows with glazing bars, painted stone sills. End wall has pointed cast-iron casement with intersecting glazing bars, similar window above. 2 false pointed moulded arches, are explained by this wall facing the churchyard, so this would give the illusion of part of a ruined church. Rear wall has outshut with C20 porch, C20 door and windows. Interior of clay house has 2 pairs of full crucks. Before 1685 the vicar lived in the tower at the east end of the church which was described in 1703 as being ruinous.
