part in the N front but much higher than the S part. This has 2
windows and the entrance on the right. Recessed sash windows

added on the E side set back on each front. 1 window to each
storey. All the windows have louvred shutters. A picturesque
C18 and C19 rectory. Part of the group around the parish church.
