WALTON CP MAIN STREET (South side) ST43NE

5/100 Nos 67 and 67A (The Old Parsonage) 22.11.66

GV II*

Postulated as a monastic manor courthouse with an attached, though separate, house for the rector of Street, (Walton once part of that Parish); now a single dwelling. C15 with much alteration, particularly virtually complete refenestration c1940 with imported C15 features. Rubble with roughcast; freestone dressings; coped verges; C20 stacks, predominantly brick. Two 2-storey rectangular ranges staggered and joined only at the angles where there is a vice; each range with a former hall on first floor. Perpendicular. Two 3-light stone-mullioned windows on Eastern side are original: each light with a cusped head, one window with a transom and stopped label; most of the other windows appear re-set. north-west range with fine semi-octagonal bay window to North gable, 2-storeyed with a tripartite tile roof, windows re-set. Two door openings to West, that to North range with a 2-centred moulded stone surround, directly adjacent an identical second doorway now blocked, C20 porch; that to south-west range via a shallow porch with a door opening in a moulded stone surround with a 4-centred head, moulded wooden inner doorframe with 4-centre head and carved spandrels, again both the latter 2 doorways appearing imported. Many interior features of the 1940 restoration including doors, doorways and probably all the fireplaces; the moulded ceiling to the South of the South range and the moulded coffered ceiling (partially obscured) to the north range are undoutedly original. Roof to South with arch-braced collar trusses; that to North with collar and tie-beam trusses.
