12/58 Nos. 1 and 2, Priory
House, now extended and divided to form 2 houses. C14/C15, altered in C19 and
C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3-bay main
range facing W and 2-bay crosswing to left, with internal stack at the junction.
C18/C19 stack in right return wall. C19 extension to left, with axial stack,
and extending to rear, forming an L-plan. Late C19/early C20 Gothic Revival
gabled porch to left, and C20 single-storey lean-to extensions to rear of it and
to rear of main range. 2 storeys. 4-window range of C20 casements, diamond

2). Door to no. 1 in left return with 2 Gothic Revival 2-centred lights in side
porch. Hipped roof of low pitch. Externally of misleading appearance, the most
visible original features are in the crosswing, forming the right side of no. 2,
which has jowled posts, close studding with curved tension bracing trenched to
the outside, a chamfered binding beam with plain joists of horizontal section
jointed to it with central tenons, a steeply cranked and chamfered tiebeam with
plain stops, and a shutter groove for an unglazed window at the rear. The roof
was formerly of crownpost construction, hipped at the rear, but wholly rebuilt
in the early C19. Minor charring of this roof, and other alterations, date from
a fire in 1916 (Our Village, Hatfield Peverel W.E.A., 1951, 14). The interior
is exposed to right of the main stack. This house was the Vicarage until the
present vicarage east of the Church was constructed. RCHM 15.
