SP50NW (East side)
Old Marston
4/141 No.15 (Manor House) and
attached front wall


Manor house. Early C19, partly earlier. Limestone ashlar front and coursed
squared rubble; old plain-tile roofs with stone stacks. Probably central-stair
plan. 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window front, with plinth and storey band, has
central door, with rectangular overlight, and 12-pane sashes. Shallow-pitched
roof has flanking stacks with moulded caps and a lateral stack rising from the
rear slope. Single-storey rubble and tiled range to right. Parallel hip-roofed
rear range and rear wing are probably earlier and have casements. Interior not
inspected. Low front wall, with moulded coping, has square corner piers and
returns to front of house. May incorporate part of the Manor house noted as
having been built by Unton Croke and used as Fairfax's headquarters during the
seige of Oxford in 1645. The Treaty for the Surrender of Oxford was signed there
in 1646. See also No.17 Mill Lane (Cromwells House).
