Vicarage. Late-C17 with early-C19 remodelling and late-C19 additions.
Painted brick with rendered plinth, and plain tile roof with partial
catslide over outshut to rear at right. 2 storeys and attic. Plinth,
toothed-brick string course, 3 segmental-headed eaves dormers with
2-light casements, and truncated external end stack to left. 7 bays;
16-pane glazing bar sashes, third and fifth on first floor and second,
third and fifth on ground floor blocked. 2 late-C19 inserted windows
flanking central door with 6 raised and fielded panels and porch with
pilasters and hexagonal columns supporting frieze and cornice. Late-
Cl9 wing to left at rear, and 3 gabled eaves dormers to right at rear.
Interior: late-C17 staircase; rising 2 floors, square well with 3 flights
to each floor with landings; moulded closed string, pierced double
lyre-shaped splat balusters, deeply moulded grip rail, and square
newel posts, that at foot with faceted rectangular panels and bulbous
finial; panelled soffit on ground floor with probably introduced
carved panel depicting owl and grotesque figure with forked tongue;
probably C19 shaped pierced frieze on ground floor with bulbous pendants.
The carved staircase panel could be the crest of Walter Waring of
Owlbury (q.v. Lydham C.P.) which Cranage states was removed from the
church in 1860 (q.v. Cranage, Part 5, p.380). Included because of
staircase (c.f. No.23, Welsh Street).
