The Oak


House. Early C16, altered in C18 and early C19. Timber framed, plastered and
weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 5-bay continuous jetty
house facing E, with 2 rear stacks and an external stack at the right end.
Early C19 single-storey lean-to extension to left, roofed with slate. C18
extension to rear with gambrel roof, and complex series of extensions on each
side of and beyond it, mostly early C19. 2 storeys. Ground floor, one early
C19 sash of 16 lights, 2 C20 casements, and door altered to C20 fixed light.
First floor, 5 early C19 2-light windows each with one wrought iron casement,
the saddle bars removed. Early C19 flush 6-panel door, the top 2 panels glazed.
Exposed full-length jetty with 5 plain brackets in situ. Roof hipped. Jowled
posts. 'Suffolk' bracing trenched inside heavy studding, mostly plastered over.
Edge-halved and bridled scarfs in wallplates, the rear wallplate made up of
several short lengths of timber. On the ground floor the studding of the left
end and the next partition have been removed; the soffits of all the beams have
been hacked back, and some are boxed in. Crownpost roof with plain crownposts
and axial bracing. Early C19 features include a stair with stick balusters, a
reeded fire surround to left of the axial stack, and a pine fireplace carved
with the arms of Lord Nelson, now in the left ground-floor room, but removed
from the right ground-floor room, an exceptional survival. A report by Harry
Forrester, 1969, in the possession of the owner states that the joists are 180mm
wide (not now visible), and that the original screens passage is the short bay
near the right end. Further examination may confirm this, but it may be a bay
for an original timber-framed chimney; there are some indications that the
service bay was at the left end. Formerly called Connies Oak or Flynters. Deeds
from 1642 to 1677 in Essex Record Office, D/DGh T.4. The farm was acquired by
Guy's Hospital in 1725, sold to Essex County Council in 1920, and the farmhouse
was sold separately in 1949.
