3/11 No 2 (The Royal Oak)


House, now public house. Circa 1700, altered. Magnesian limestone blocks
with raised rusticated quoins, roof of composition pantiles. Rectangular
doube-depth plan. Two storeys and six bays in classical style, almost
symmetrical; facade now rendered and colour-washed, and 1st-floor band now
enclosed by a continuous horizontal panel formed by added bands above and
below (at head and sill level of the lower and upper windows); doorway in 4th
bay (now enclosed by wooden rectangular porch) has architrave with pilasters,
moulded imposts, and cornice; 12-pane sashed windows with raised surrounds,
except the 3rd at 1st floor which has a shouldered architrave; and beneath
the sill of this window a rectangular panel with moulded surround. Moulded
cornice behind gutter. Low-pitched hipped roof with chimneys at each end of
the short central ridge (left chimney cut down). The rear, perhaps formerly
the front, is of ashlar, has a hacked-off 1st-floor band, and is of only 5
bays, with the doorway offset slightly to the right; this and the window
above have shoudered architraves and moulded cornices, but the doorway is
covered by a porch like that at the front; windows sashed without glazing
bars. Later additions at each end not included in the item.

Interior: partition walls removed, but moulded plaster cornices and ceiling
decorations in Rococo style survive, principally in the rear rooms.
