ETHERLEY CHURCH STREET NZ 12 NE (West side, off) High Etherley 5/10 The Rectory


Rectory. Dated 1834, probably by Ramshaw; rear additions of 1882 incorporate fragments of C18 house. Coursed squared sandstone with ashlar dressings, plinth and quoins; Welsh slate roof with stone gable copings. Irregular plan. Tudor style. Main front 2 storeys, 3 bays; steps up to central renewed door and inserted overlight in Tudor-arched surround with wide, stopped chamfer; Tudor lettering 18 T 34 in moulded panel under floating cornice; 2-light window above, and 3-light windows in outer bays, have recessed chamfers, stone mullions, floating cornices; narrow sashes, most with glazing bars removed. Central bay projects slightly under crow-stepped gable with gable string. Roof gable copings rest on moulded kneelers; end chimneys with plinths and cornices have 2-centred arches between conjoined flues; similar chimneys on rear wing ridges. Interior shows moulded stucco ceiling cornices to principal rooms; 6-panel doors in architraves; re-used 2-panel door to cellar.

The 'T' in the date panel perhaps refers to Bishop Thorpe, a patron of the church.

Most of the cost was met by the vicar, George Watson.
