13/88 The Old Rectory
26/11/51 (Formerly listed as Rectory)
Wing of rectory, now house. 1828 by John Plowman (builder) for Reverend James
Blomfield but part probably slightly earlier. Coursed squared limestone with
some ashlar dressings; Welsh-slate roof with brick stacks. Double-depth plan. 2
storeys. Right bay of 4-window front is earlier and has large tripartite sashes
to both floors; other bays have 12-pane sashes plus the entrance, with 4-panel
door, rectangular overlight and the inscription "Pax Intrantibus Salus
Exeuntibus" on the lintel of its pilastered ashlar doorcase. All windows have
ashlar flat arches. Shallow-pitched hipped roof with overhanging boxed eaves has
end stacks. Rear has full-height sashes and a doorway with a fanlight. Interior
not inspected. Entrance is re-set from a contemporary, demolished section. The
C16/C17 main range, the home of Bishop Skinner during the Commonwealth, was
demolished in 1965 but the study fireplace is now incorporated into a garage.
