Community :- Welshpool
Prefered site type :- 16th century ? - Vicarage (Document - Destroyed )

First record of the parsonage house occurs in 1684, though it is believed to have been built in the C16th with later alterations. It was built partly of brick and timber, lath and plaster, covered with tiles, it had 2 parlours below stairs, a kitchen, pantry and brewhouse, and upstairs 4 lodging rooms, a storeroom, and one garret above. Outside were various buildings associated with the glebe. A garden lay to the south side of the house and an orchard to the west, which stretched from the house to the Lledan brook. By 1819, when William Clive was appointed vicar, the house was in a deplorable state (Brown, R L, 1996, 51-3).
