TL 6222 GREAT DUNMOW CHURCH STREET (W side) 7/12 Vicarage & St. Mary's 7.2.52 side


Vicarage and flat. Mid C16 and earlier and substantially timber framed and plastered with peg tile roofs. Of 2 storeys with attics, the plan form is very complex. End onto the road is a gable peg tile, 2 storey block, with exposed mid C16 timber framing on this end wall. Well shaped serpentine bracing, elegant jowls and traces of an original first floor window can be detected. This block has a segmental headed dormer in its S roof slope and 3 double hung sash windows with small panes on the first floor of this elevation. The ground floor here has a lean-to conservatory, and within a large double hung sash window. At right angles to this and running N-S is a gabled peg tile roofed block with one small over one very large double hung sash window. A long range parallel to the street, north of the mid C16 block, has 2 similar dormers. 2 double hung sash windows over 3 old cast-iron light casements on the ground floor. To the rear of the complex, a tall, 2 storey, half hipped roofed late C18 block, has very large double hung sash windows facing W. A 2 storey late C19 red brick gabled peg tile roofed extension on the NW corner completes the group. Three C19 brick stacks are on a gable end, one on the main ridge line and one to the rear of the southern block. To the immediate N, a 2 storey slate hipped roofed mid C19 coach-house of red brick with loft and access door and one large opening. Interior reveals a mid C16 2 storey, formerly jettied to the front, 2 bay wing with delicately moulded floor and ceiling joists. The roof has remains of the side purlin/windbraced original structure. The southern wing is of probable C17 framing. The western block is all late C18 with contemporary staircase with simple turned balusters. The northern roadside range has, on the ground floor, massive jowled posts, thick bracing rising from near the floor and a moulded side girt of early form suggest the substructure of a first floor hall of the C13 or C14. Late C18 cornices, doors, skirtings, dados and internalwooden shutters on a number of rooms. Late C17 service stairs to north of present kitchen. (RCHM 33).
