Full Description

Vicarage to the nearby Church of St Paul (see PRN 24041), designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and built between 1877-79. Constructed of red brick with brick and stone dressings. Features a plain tile roof with coped gables, stone finials and ornamental brick stacks with linked and moulded octagonal flues. The interior is remarkably complete, with original fireplaces and staircase, although some alterations occurred in 1965. This vicarage is well designed and finely detailed with careful proportions in the elevations, rich but careful detailing, good massing, variety in outline and planes, and overall individuality. For the full description and the legal address of this listed building please refer to the appropriate List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. {1}{2}{3} The vicarage was included in the programme of historic building survey, conducted in March 2007 to inform the adjacent Church of St Paul's future use and conservation. The building is of two storeys with steeply-pitched tiled roofs and dormers. The principal rooms inside are to the south, with the former service quarters to the north. To the north of the house is a waleld service court with a washhouse. The vicarage has been little altered since construction, with the only major change being the removal of the secondary staircase formerly at the north end of the building. {4}
