TM 48 SW WESTHALL CHURCH HILL
3/41 Nos.1,2,3 & 4 Old Vicarage
Former vicarage, now a row of 4 cottages. 2 storeys and attics. Early C15,
with later modifications. Timber-framed, encased in mid C19 red brick; part
clay pantiles, part double Romans. 2 internal chimney-stacks with plain red
brick shafts. Some 3-light C19 casement windows with segmental arched heads
and horizontal bars to lights; some C20 2-light casements; C19 dormers with
single-pitch sloping roofs. Various doors and timber porches. Little framing
exposed inside, except in No.2, which contains a fine crownpost truss and a
complete smoke-blackened medieval roof relating to an open hall of 2 bays:
cambered tie-beam, braces removed, tall octagonal crown-post with moulded cap
and base, braced 4 ways at the head, with wide, heavy braces. The quality of
this work, coupled with the siting of the building opposite the church,
suggests that prior to its being used as a vicarage it may have been a parish
