In the centre of Coddington is the Old Rectory which dates back to 1585 and is built of local stone.
There have been many extensions during the 17th century and during the 19th century. From 1921 this was a private school which was founded by Mrs. Gladys Marsham primarily to look after children between three and seventeen whose parents were serving in the armed forces in India. This school was originally in Coddington Court, but was moved to the Rectory in 1921. Amongst the pupils were Sarah Churchill, niece of Winston; Michael Bentine, and former Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe. Two of the girls there went on to work on ENIGMA, the codebreaking machine at Bletchley Park.
Since 1957 the Old Rectory has been a private house.
