Dating from circa 1620 in the original part and remodelled in the early 18th century, adding its front Georgian façade and a third floor, The Old Manse is believed to be one of the oldest houses in Winster. Little is known about the early life of the property however in the early 19th century it was the home of a Methodist Minister and at the beginning of the 20th century it was occupied by a Cornishman named Mr Thomas who operated the steam powered pumping engine at the nearby Mill Close lead mine. During the inter-war period it was the home and surgery of local GP, Dr Fletcher and his wife, who was instrumental in reviving the Winster Morris Dancers.
