3/79 The Old Rectory - GV II House. Former rectory. Circa 1840-50. Local stone and flint rubble with some Beerstone detail; the front is plastered; stone rubble stacks with plastered brick divided chimneyshafts; slate roof. Plan: the house faces south-south-west, say south, away from the lane and church. The front block contains the 3 principal rooms. The left (west) one has a gable end stack and the other two share an axial stack serving back-to-back fireplaces. The centre and right room section is double depth. The rear section has a double roof at right angles to the front roof. This includes the entrance hall and main stair (there is no front doorway) and a service room heated by an axial stack. A 1-room plan kitchen block projects east from the rear part, its roof the same axis as the front block. It has a projecting gable-end stack. This block includes the former parish room. 2 storeys. Restrained Tudor Gothic style. Exterior: symmetrical 3-window front. The centre bay is broken forward a short distance and is gabled. It has a ground floor canted bay window and a first floor casement with hoodmould. In the gable above is an uninscribed shield-shaped plaque. Either side are ground floor casement windows with hoodmoulds and first floor gabled half dormers. Here, and around the rest of the house are mostly original mullioned windows with hoodmoulds. The ground floor windows have transoms. Most contain replacement glass but a couple of rear windows contain diamond panes of leaded glass. The roofs are gable-ended with shaped kneelers and coping. The rear elevation is less regular and includes a double gabled section. Interior: not inspected but it is said to contain a great deal of original joinery and other detail.
