The Medieval Rectory at Clay End
Walkern’s Medieval Rectory
The rectory before Daniel Gorsuch built the brick rectory for his son John in 1632, was sited within the medieval Walkern Park. The most likely contender for the original building is this house, now two residences, at Clay End. It was built in the 16th century or earlier as an open hall house, but renovated as the two Gothic style houses now seen, in the mid 19th century.
