Name:The old Chagford Rectory


Built in 1887 by the Stones, a family of local builders, close to the site of the old rectory (Chagford House). A modern rectory was built in the early 1970s in part of the garden as a replacement. This building was known as 'Nattadon House' and was a hotel for a period of time. Is now a private residence and appears to be known as 'Bly House'.

In 1887, the Stones, a family of local builders built the new rectory at the foot of Nattadon Hill, a little above and behind Chagford House. The rectory abutted a large area of glebe land, traditionally let as church allotments. The modest modern rectory (1972) occupies a corner of the garden belonging to the Victorian building, now known as Nattadon House. After a period of time as a hotel, this is now a private residence

Ordnance Survey, 2016, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV359352.

Shown on the modern mapping as 'Bly House', with the modern rectory just to the north.
