SK 5319 NE & SK 52 SW RECTORY PLACE 10/82 & 2/82 (north side)

15.3.65 The Old Rectory (formerly listed as The Rectory)


Two bays of medieval hall-house, now ruinous, with part of lower end rebuilt as museum. Late C13 or early C14 and later. Coursed rubble with ashlar dressings. Walls thickened, perhaps in C16 - cross passage doors (and probably also the windows) had 2-centred arches to exterior, 4-centred to interior. Lower end, 3 arched doorways (central one mutilated) into service area linked by ashlar surround, with fine Geometrical traceried spandrels. Low cusped-headed doorway leading to staircase on right. Left-hand return front of lower end incorporates some old timbers arranged when this block was rebuilt as museum in the 1960s. At rear, part of ashlar surround to doorway opposite central opening from hall survives, below coping for gable of building beyond, presumably kitchen. Single- light cusped opening to first floor. The Rectory was enlarged at later dates - notably after a fire in 1826 - but in 1962 all save the medieval parts was demolished.
