The Old Parsonage is not only an important building in its own right, this house also conveys a strong impression of a parson’s life in former days. A rectory was first built here at the same time as the elaborate Norman church a few yards away. In about 1500, a smart new wing was added, and in it are the handsome rooms that you can occupy. Some of them were later panelled and given new fireplaces.
The elegantly panelled parlour and dining room look out over a charming garden. The staircase, in a square tower of its own, is strong and plain, and reminiscent of those in the nearby Oxford colleges.
