In spite of its name, originally this was not a vicarage, and it was only in the late 19th century that a vicar of the nearby St Clement's Church lived here.

In 2010-2012 a new owner carried out a major refurbishment, including the removal of a three storey 1980s extension at the far side, and its replacement with a single storey extension, just partly visible in the photo. A 20th century bow window on the middle floor was also replaced with a standard window. And the exterior colour was changed from an insipid grey to a more welcoming yellow.
