7/12 The Old Glebe and Glebe House
Pair of houses, originally the rectory. Early to mid C17 with early C19 addition.
Plastered cob and rubble walls. Gable-ended slate roof to The Old Glebe, hipped
roof to Glebe House. The Old Glebe has a projecting plastered rubble lateral stack
at the front and a similar one at its left gable end. Glebe House has 3 rendered
brick stacks - one at its right end, one at the end of the end of the rear wing and
one lateral one at the front.
Plan: 2 distinct parts, now divided, but formerly one house. The Old Glebe to the
right, is the earlier with the 2 rooms and through-passage plan - the right-hand
room heated by a front lateral stack and the left-hand room by a gable-end stack.
Glebe House constitutes an early C19 addition to the rear of The Old Glebe and at
right angles to it forming a new front block. It is L-shaped with 2 front rooms and
a central entrance hall leading to stairs behind the right-hand room and a 1-room
wing behind the left-hand room. The older range was probably relegated to service
and cooking functions when the addition was built.
Exterior: 2 storeys. The Old Glebe has an asymmetrical 5-window front of mainly
C20 1, 2 and 3-light casements apart from a Victorian decorative glazed light on the
1st floor at the centre. Wide doorway to passage below it with C20 plank door.
Glebe House has a symmetrical 3-window front of early C19 12-pane sashes. The left-
hand windows are blind - being blocked by the stock behind but do retain their
glass. Central doorway with panelled reveals and rectangular fanlight above
contemporary 6-panel door. The left-hand elevation also has early C19 sashes on the
first floor with 1 C20 casement inserted and tall Victorian sashes on the ground
Interior: of The Old Glebe has chamfered ceiling beams and an open fireplace with
wooden lintel in the left-hand room.
Glebe House preserves 6-panel doors, its original staircase with column newel and
stick balusters and simple moulded plaster cornices.
