The Rectory (Simonburn)

The Rectory probably stands on the site of an earlier tower. The present building may date back as far as 1666 as there is a datestone in one wing that bears this date together with an inscription to Rev Major Allgood. The front part of the house was built in 1725 for the Reverend Henry Wastell and further additions were made in the 19th century. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
