The old rectory house, It is believed,
was erected soon after the great fire,
and until about half a century ago it
served its original purpose. Then it
was let out in suities of offices, which,
with their easy staircases, commodious
landings and low-pitched but eminently
comfortable rooms, are In sharp contrast with the modern business suites
of today.
The- great charm of the old rectory
