SP52NE (South side)
4/13 Old Rectory

Rectory, now house. Early C17, altered and extended C18 and C19. Limestone
rubble with wooden lintels; Stonesfield-slate roof with brick gable stacks.
L-plan. 2 storeys plus attic. Front, facing garden, breaks forward in the larger
left section which has, at first floor, two 2-light leaded casements plus a
blocked central window, and at ground floor has a central doorway, with a leaded
overlight and pyramid chamfer stops to the lintel, plus a 2-light casement and a
C19 canted bay window. Right section has an old 3-light casement at first floor,
with very old leaded glazing, but the ground floor is obscured by a low link to
a 2-storey rubble service wing which retains an old plank door and is probably
C18. Left gable wall of train range is rendered and was probably once an internal
wall. Rear has an outshut, but the right section retains 3-light casements.
Right gable wall has a bread-oven projection and faces the road. Interior:
Smaller section has a wide open fireplace with stop-chamfered lintel and
restored jambs; larger section has a large ground floor roan (formerly
sub-divided) containing 2 ovolo-moulded cross beams with diamond and
fleur-de-lys stops. Replaced as the rectory in 1833 and probably partly
(VCH; Oxfordshire; Vol VI; pp72)
