Scope and Content
Mitchell, J. C. Eight views of Cullompton and neighbourhood; together with a concise compilation of explanatory particulars and description. Cullompton: I. Frost, 1851.The view of the Vicarage was sketched from immediately on the other side of the pond, and embraces the front of the house, over which variegated shrubs are neatly twined, and the east end of the chancel together with the back part of the tower, shewing itself in full grandeur above the Church. A similar view is seen in passing by train.[…] From the yard in which there are many very ancient grave stones, some legibly hearing the date of 1471, we enter through a neat private entrance at the back of the Church, the shrubbery and lawn belonging to the Vicarage, the residence of the REV. W. SYKES, M. A. the present vicar and patron. The lawn is carefully laid out with flowers and shrubs, and graced with fine old trees and an oval pond in its centre. It affords a pleasing view of the meadows and fields through which runs the Bristol and Exeter Railway, the height of the Blackdown Hills at a distance of about six miles, terminating farther observation.
