Adel Church, the Rectory (Adel)
Black & White imageJune 1967. View of the stone built Rectory located on a site to the east of Adel Church, partially covered in creepers. A tree in full leaf is in the foreground of the image. The building has its origins in the seventeenth century with part of a timber framed structure still intact in the northern section. It was discovered during alterations in 1978. Later, in the mid-seventeenth century, the house was thought to have been encased in stone and then just before 1770 considerably enlarged with the addition of a new building connected to the older one by a passgeway. This Georgian building became the front of the rectory as can be seen in this image. More alterations took place in 1819 and in 1858 the front porch, seen here, was added by the Reverend Henry Trail Simpson and new rooms were built between the new and old building, filling in the space either side of the central passageway.
