This well known glebe house, situated close to Macclesfield was built in 1472 and survives very little changed from the time of its erection. A peerless half-timbered house - full of romance, full of history, charged with an old-world atmosphere - Gawsworth Old Rectory lies in peaceful seclusion in rural Cheshire.

Once the home of Mary Fitton - the supposed 'Dark Lady' of Shakespeare's sonnets - this building, unique among all other parsonage houses, in company with medieval church and Old Hall, attracts visitors from all parts of the world.
