The Rectory House painted throughout, inside & outside
A new Altar Table of Carved oak, the offering of Mistresses Harriet, Laura & Ellen Copleston was placed: the old one being removed into the Vestry & fitted with a Box & Shelves underneath the Board to hold the Furniture of the Table & Kneeling Cushions. NB The material of the new Table was mostly Old Oak from the Roof of Tresham Church, under repair.
This year the N.E. portion of the Roof of the Old Parsonage was stripped – new timbers put in new laths & tiles and a lead gutter placed in the Angle corresponding with the one on the S Side. The Loft over the Home Stable was removed – the whole being left open to the Roof & a window placed in the W. Gable. This alteration has made the Stable much more wholesome. A Wider Door Case & new folding doors placed to Stable.
