2/221 Old Rectory

House, formerly rectory, 1728. Rendered with sandstone dressings and stone
slate roof. A symmetrical composition of 3 storeys and 5 bays, with
chamfered quoins. Boxed sash windows have glazing bars and plain reveals.
The door has a surround of chamfered rustication, with round head
and moulded imposts. Above is a plaque carved with a shield of arms and
inscribed: 'George Hornby Clerk A.M. Rector of Whittington erected this
