29.7.55 The Vicarage
Vicarage. A very complex house with work of late C15, early-mid C16, C17,
early C18 and 1870. Substantially reduced in size c.1960 by demolition of
some rear additions. The main elements are a hall range to the front, a rear
range parallel to it, a cross-wing to the left and a small wing to the right,
behind and at right angles to the front range. Timber framed: most of the
front has C16-style imitation studwork with herringbone brick nogging, added
in 1870; a small section plastered with coved eaves cornice. Remains of old
panelled plasterwork at rear. Plaintiled roofs. 2 storeys; attic only in
cross-wing. Casement windows. 2 ground floor bay windows with plaintiled
roofs and to the left a projecting first floor window on brackets, all of
1870. Central gabled porch, the upper floor overhanging at the front; open
entrance has carved spandrels; partly-glazed studded door. The porch is dated
1870 together with the initials of Edward Paget, the vicar at that time.
Front gable end of cross-wing preserves some late C15 work, although much
restored in 1870 to match the remainder of the front. Jettied first floor
carried on original fleuron-enriched brackets supported by carved buttress-
shafts. Overhanging gable on plain brackets. Original close studding. Some
applied moulded joists added during restoration. Heavy ridge stack at
junction of cross-wing and hall range. Another stack, perhaps early C17,
against right gable end of hall range. Internally, nearly all the timber-
framed structure is concealed. A little studding in one first floor room in
hall range. Ground floor room in cross-wing has good complete early C18
raised and fielded panelling with a matching 6-panel door of the same period.
Several early C18 2-panel doors. To rear an early C19 well stair with stick
balusters and carved tread-ends. Much simple detail of early-mid C19. Roof
over hall range has queen posts and king posts, the latter rising mainly from
the tie beams and supporting a ridge piece, with 2-way bracing to it. No
smoke blackening. The end towards the cross-wing has an open truss over a
first floor chamber. Here the king post is chamfered and carried on the
collar, which has shallow-curved solid braces meeting at the centre (a raised-
aisle form). There are 2 intermediate trusses with shorter arched braces to
the collars and no king post. This work is early-mid C16 in date and probably
replaced an earlier hall range which may have been contemporary with the
existing cross-wing. Original side-purlin roof over cross-wing, with ashlar
pieces to principal trusses. The rear range, later than the front, has been
re-roofed at a shallower pitch: some sooted rafters and others formed from
halved moulded joists from a jettied range. Substantial remains of
surrounding medieval moat.
