The Vicarage
The Vicarage in the 1950s St Pauls 2001
Nowadays this is no longer the Vicarage. The Vicar of Froyle and Holybourne lives in the vicarage in Holybourne and Froyle Vicarage is now a private house, named St. Pauls. The ‘old’ picture is a drawing by Mr.Langdon which was one of a series done in the early 1950s and made into Christmas cards in 1954. The modern photograph was taken on June 13th 2001. The main changes are not visible in the modern view as the hedge is somewhat taller.
  • The low level extensions to the right of the building have been pulled down.
  • The ‘bay’ above the porch has been removed.
  • It seems as though another window has been added on the left gable end of the house at the front.

The house was Grade 2 Listed in July 1963. English Heritage gives the following information:-
