Full Description

There are several other buildings in the village that also contribute significantly to the historic built environment. The largest, like Wychanger largely concealed from sight, is the former Rectory, also known as The Manor House. This was built between 1839 and 1856 for the then rector Thomas Fisher, and replaced a much earlier building. It is in a sprawling neo-Elizabethan style , stone built with slate roof, mullioned windows, raised gables corbelled out, and diagonally opposed brick stacks on stone shafts. Adjoining, and also stone-built, are the former stables with a half-hipped Bridgwater tiled roof, and six-light timber casement windows with brick architraves. [1]
