- II

Vicarage, now house. c.1858 for Revd. F. Garrett by G.E. Street, extended 1869
by C. Buckeridge and 1880 by E. Bruton. Coursed squared limestone rubble with
ashlar dressings; Stonesfield-slate and plain-tile roofs with stone stacks.
Complex Z-shaped plan. Gothic style. 2 storeys and 2 storeys plus attic.
Entrance front has a central stone porch, a canted bay window to left, and has
to right a gable above a trefoil-headed mullion- and -transom first-floor
window. The higher range projecting from the right is a later addition and has a
turret in the angle capped by a timber-framed second-floor studio with an
octagonal pyramid roof. The 4-window garden front, returning to left, has a
projecting gabled bay to right, a 2-storey canted bay window to left, and
includes 2 other gables and a large buttressed stack; several first-floor
windows have trefoiled heads and most windows have transoms. Probably all is by

left. Interior: hall has pointed stone arches and a glass done. Single-storey
wing at rear now contains a private theatre.
