The Medieval Rectory, Church Farm

The Medieval Rectory, Church Farm, Adlingfleet, Goole, East Riding DN14 8JB View on map

Standing remains representing the surviving part of a stone 13th century rectory, incorporating a reset 12th century doorway, along with later alterations. A very rare surviving example of a medieval secular building in this part of Yorkshire. It was built by John Le Francis, a King's councillor and Rector of Adlingfleet from stones taken from an older local church which was pulled down in a dispute with Selby Abbey. The rectory was converted for use as an agricultural barn in the 18th century and retains features from this period, including a pantile roof, south facing brick wall and louvred windows. Previously ruinous, the building was consolidated and re-roofed in 2013-14 and a medieval 'double herber' style garden created to complement the restoration.
