Polesworth Vicarage

Polesworth Vicarage stands adjacent to St Editha's Church in High Street, Polesworth, Warwickshire, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.[1]

The vicarage was rebuilt in about 1870, incorporating parts of an earlier building, the architect being John Douglas of Chester.[2] It is built on the site of the former lodging of the abbess of Polesworth Abbey. The vicarage is constructed in brown brick with some timber framing and tiled roofs; it is in the form of an E-plan. Internally there is an Elizabethan fireplace and some 17th-century panelling.[1]
