The Old Rectory retains some traces of a C17 house but the present red-brick house was built for the Rev T.W. Beauchamp in 1827 and extended in 1839. The chimney stacks have clustered octagonal and diagonal shafts and are dated "TPB 1827" > Link. The interior of the building, which is Grade II listed, contains many re-set archaeological fragments collected by Reverend Beauchamp. The adjoining stable block and coach house are also Grade II listed.

The surrounding red-brick wall has rare a wayside pulpit > Link which was put in for the Rev. William Haslam, who was rector here from 1863 to 1871; he used this pulpit to preach to the huge crowds that gathered in the adjoining field > Link.
