Glebe House. Situated on north side of churchyard. Short slate hung structure in granite and ironstone rubble construction. Aligned east/west. Now somewhat truncated from both ends; fragments of original side and end walls incorporated in outshut on the east end and ground floor extension on the west end. That on the east end has a fragment of blocked window partly obscured by slate hanging on the first floor facing the churchyard. 19th century outshut on north side. Low hipped slate roof, obviously not original. Was used as schoolroom and vicarage up until the 1860s, after which it became a private house. Two 18th century gothic windows on ground floor either side of a door, facing the churchyard. All other windows are of normal shape.
