English Heritage, 2009, Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest (Correspondence). SDV342640.

The Secretary of State, after consulting wth English Heritage has decided not to remove the building from the list. Yealmpton Manor merits retention on the statutory list for the folllowing principal reasons: The building has not been substantially altered since it was listed. It is a competently designed early 19th century vicarage with two principal elevations and a largely intact interior demonstrating a quality and thoroughness to the treatment of the whole building. It is therefore of sufficient special architectural or historic interest to merit retention on the list. Other details: 100493.

Department for Culture, Media and Sport, 2009, Yealmpton (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV342641.

Yealmpton Manor is listed at Grade II due to it being a competently designed early 19th century vicarage with two principal elevations and a largely intact interior demonstrating a quality and thoroughness to the treatment of the whole building. The strongest argument for reconsideration of the listing of the Old Vicarage is the fact that many of the windows were replaced after the original listing survey had occurred. While this change is unfortunate the original openings have not been altered and the architectural refinement of the design and special interest of the building remain clearly apparent. The issue of the setting are of lesser importance in this instance.
