The S part has 2 sash windows under gauged arches, a triple window on the right. The narrower window may be in the position of the original door.

Recessed sash windows under segmental gauged arches with 6/6 panes. Wide eaves overhang with plastered soffit. A flat topped, heavy Tuscan porch with columns, pilasters and full entablature. 6-panel half-glazed door. At the same time a narrower 2 storeys bay was added on the E side set back on each front. 1 window to each storey. All the windows have louvred shutters. A picturesque C18 and C19 rectory. Part of the group around the parish church.
