Listing Text


10/32 Oak House Private Hotel
(formerly listed as "The Oak

Detached house. C16, modified in all subsequent centuries. Ham stone rubble, ashlar and brick dressings; thatched roofs
between stepped coped gables; brick and stone chimney stacks. Complex plan: 2 storeys, 3 bays, of which bay 2 is a
slight projection with a hipped roof. Horizontal bar casements of 3, 4 and 3 lights to first floor, under timber
lintols, to ground floor are 4-light casements in brick segmental arched openings bays 1 and 2, and to right of bay 1
and left of bay 3 similar openings, formerly doorways now shortened with casement windows; bay 3 has a single-storey
angled bay window, presumably for former shop; bracket for hanging sign on north-east corner. South gable plain; north
gable has a doorway in recess, with conical thatched hood on timber brackets. Attached to rear are further units,
notably a main wing of which the projecting bay 2 is part, and also a west crosswing. Interior not seen, but reported
are timber-framed crosswalls, a 12-panel moulded beam ceiling, traces of wattle and daub partitioning as screen, C18
well staircase, a large cambered-arched fireplace with ogee/ ovolo mouldings, and former kitchen fireplace, partly
adapted; some C16 doorways; a variety of roof trusses including at least one cruck, raised and possibly jointed, some
post and truss partitions, 2 pair windbraces. This substantial house became a 'department store' in early C19, prior to
which it may have been an inn (SSAVBRG Report, unpublished SRO, April 1985).
