Full Description

The Old Rectory, east of St Andrew's Chruch, Cubley, originally a mid-18th century building. 'The house, which is no longer a vicarage, may well have had earlier origins. The church is said to date from the 12th century. The earliest recorded vicar is named in a 16th century document and there is a reference to a 3-bayed parsonage in a document of 1679. The building mentioned in 1679 was probably a timber-framed dwelling and of post-medieval or of medieval origin. The same document indicates that in 1679 the vicar had a smallholding, to augment his living. At some point in the 18th century a brick wing was added to the southwest. In 1820-21 the vicarage was extensively remodeled and a new range added to the south. The building seems to have undergone further remodelling in the 1840s, and the building shown on the OS 1st edition, of 1881, occupies more of less the same footprint as the current building. A part of the structure also seems to have been a part of a timber framed structure.'
