hall with original wide staircase of 2 straight flights with turned
balusters. Moulded ceiling cornice to landing, original doors. Walled yard
with stables, carriage house and outbuildings attached to west side of
house; the front wall of the service wing survives as the east end of the
north wall of the yard. The north wall is approximately 2.5 metres high,
with ashlar coping, ramped down to brick gate piers with flat ashlar caps.
A small lean-to stable or outbuilding in the courtyard against the west end
of the north wall has board door and 4-pane side-sliding sash window.
Courtyard, west side: carriage house of 2 storeys and 2 bays, single-storey
bay to left. Carriage house: 2 C20 garage doors, that to left, under
segmental arch in headers and stretchers, is original. 2 small square
loading doors above in segmental-headed openings. Single-storey bay

to garden to right of centre; left: single-storey range of 3 outbuildings
with board doors and small-paned windows attached to house. The building
of the present vicarage followed a period in the late C18 - early C19 when
the vicar of Kirby Hill was unable to live in the village because of the bad
condition of the old vicarage. H Stapleton, The Church of All Saints, Kirby
on the Moor, 1923, p 51.
