Full Description

A "stud and mud" thatched cottage, formerly known as "the Parsonage" but at that time occupied by the clerk, stood within the churchyard by the gate. The church terrier (25/07/1770) described it as "a small cottage built with clay and thatch, containing two small rooms". 25 years later Throsby wrote "the parsonage which stands at the edge of the churchyard, is one of the most wretched habitations I ever beheld". Nevertheless the "parsonage" survived for another hundred years, when it was demolished, under a faculty dated 16/12/2874. (1) (2)
