6/72 Tower and wall approx. 20m. NE
18/07/63 of Rycote House
Tower and wall. Early C16. Diaper brickwork with stone dressings. 2-storey
octagonal tower, with stone quoins, moulded strings and copings, has small
4-centre arched windows with labels and a richly-moulded 4-centred arched
doorway. Attached wall to right has the re-set remains of a stone doorcase of
c.1700 with eared architrave and carved surround including lion-mask consoles
and festoons. To right the wall breaks forward with an octagonal angle buttress.
The remnant of the main block of the mansion probably re-built after 1521 by Sir
John Heron, Treasurer to Henry VIII, and/or after 1539 by Sir John William
later Baron Williams of Thame. The house is shown in views of c.1695 by
Winstanley and of 1714 by Kip. It was burned down in 1745.
