4/160 Vicarage


Vicarage, late C17th, altered mid C18th. Sandstone rubble with stone slate
roof. 2 storeys. Main part of house of 3 bays. Windows have stone
surrounds with a shallow cyma moulding and with moulded sills. They are
sashed with no glazing bars except for the central one on the 1st floor
which retains its glazing bars, as does the upper sash of the window
adjoining it to the left. The central single-storey gabled porch has a
door with eared architrave, a triangular pediment and 'SALVE' inscribed on
the frieze. To the right, and partly covered by the porch, is the blocked
C17th doorway, with cyma surround and shaped lintel: presumably this was
revealed when the C18th rendering was removed. To the left is an addition
which has, on the 1st floor, a sashed window with glazing bars and a
surround similar to those to the main facade. To its right is a small
window with plain reveals. On the ground floor are 2 modern windows with
plain reveals. Gables have copings with kneelers. Chimneys on gables and
between main house and addition.
