The original building stood in the same spot as the current one but it was nearer the corner.of Carlton Road. The entrance was flush with the road and there was a large glass balcony ('the Gazebo') over the old entrance from which the Rev. Legh Richmond would keep an eye on the village, with the help of a large telescope! The rear entrance was then round the back, in Carlton Road.
The new Rectory was rebuilt in 1839 with a £1000 gift from Miss Anna Maria Higgins of Turvey House (the same lady had also donated money for a church organ and the list of rectors found in the church today).
