5/172 Old Rectory Lodge
Former farmhouse, C16 in 2 stages. 2 storeys. 3-cell lobby-entrance plan:
a service range set forward to left. Timber-framed and plastered. Concrete
pantiled roof, formerly plaintiled. An axial late C16/early C17 chimney of
red brick. A set of 4 C18 casements with transomes. Mid C20 half-glazed panelled
door at lobby-entrance, with C20 gabled open porch on posts.
Interior: The 3-cell main range has late C16 features; a little exposed close-
studding and plain chamfered main members, a wide lintelled open fireplace
in the hall. The service cell to left is of early C16 and may be the original
house, in whole or in part. It has good tension-braced studding, heavy unchamfered
floor joists, and a beam with brattishing which may be an introduction from
elsewhere. Evidence for a possible long-wall jetty, underbuilt, on the west
side. Much remodelled, reroofed and the 1st storey used as a granary in C18/C19.
