6/222 The Old Vicarage and front garden walls

GV II

Vicarage, now private house. Probably C17, extended circa later C17 or early C18 and remodelled circa late C18. Coursed mostly dressed granite front with flush dressed granite ashlar mid-floor band and voussoirs to flat arches with projecting granite keystones, granite sills otherwise granite rubble and some slatehanging to stair half gable, Scantle slate roofs with gable ends (rear of main roof and part of stair hall replaced with asbestos slate). External stone stack left with brick chimney over gable, large stone stack right over gable and brick shaft over lateral stack of right hand wall of rear wing. L-shaped plan: 2 room range at the front with cross passage between leading to stair hall projecting partly into the angle between the front range and the 2 room service range at right angles behind the right-hand room; single storey lean-to behind the left hand room and a low single storey lean-to probably earth closet projecting at left of this. It is possibly that the rear wing is the higher end of an original 3 room through passage plan with lateral hall fireplace and in circa the late C17 a parlour wing was added at right angles to form a new front, the former lower end room becoming a kitchen living room; the original hall then became a back kitchen. The inner room (rear), still unheated, is built into the bank at the rear. The conjectural through passage position behind the right hand room is a partly blocked space of unknown fabric approximately 5 feet deep (secret room); the room immediately above is a box room. 2 storeys. Slightly irregular 3 window north-north-east front with central doorway. The section of front wall including the windows and doorway was rebuilt in circa the late C18 with flat arches with a linking ashlar band over the 3 ground floor openings. At the left hand side are 2 staight joints of earlier ground and first floor window positions. The present left hand windows (2 at first floor and 1 at ground floor) are irregularly disposed. The windows and the door are circa late C18: 6-panel door (with top panels later glazed), 20 pane hornless sashes to ground floor and 16-pane hornless sashes to first floor. Much original crown glass. At the rear is a circa late C18 16-pane hornless stair sash. 2 similar windows to the first floor of the rear wing (left hand wall) and 20 pane horned sash copy to the ground floor opening. Interior : large lateral fireplace in rear wing mostly blocked, the other fireplaces remodelled in the C20. Otherwise C18 or later features: C18 narrow open-well stair with stick balusters and ramped handrail; C18 6-panel door to parlour (left of cross passage); C18 2-panel doors to first floor rooms; probably C18 roof structures (not inspected) and circa early C19 6-panel door to right hand room. Granite rubble walls surround square garden to front. Square-on-plan dressed granite gate piers flank gateway aligned with front doorway. An interesting plan development, possibly more complicated than suggested here. Attractive front and rear elevations with complete C18 fenestration and door to the front.
