Royal Oak Public House
Public House, probably a house originally. Late medieval with
added rear wing of C19 or earlier. Roughcast solid front wall;
side walls, and probably front and rear walls of stone rubble.
Slated roof. Left gable has stepped stone coping with base of
stone chimney on ridge. Right gable has C19 red-brick chimney.
2 rooms wide and 1 room deep (the medieval plan); ground floor
rooms now combined. Right-hand room possibly a former open
hall. Later rear wing to right. 2 storeys. 2 windows wide.
Late C20 metal and wood casements. C19 door to left with flush
lower panel and brass letterbox; upper part probably glazed
originally. Ground floor right has chamfered and step-stopped
beam, probably inserted C16/C17. Upper floor left gable wall
has late medieval/early post-medieval corbelled fireplace (now
plastered over). To rear, in angle with rear wall, a rounded
recess (probably a former garderobe; cf. No.33 North Street,
demolished 1970). Front roof has almost complete original
trusses and purlins, 4 arch-braced trusses (including 2
gable-trusses); slightly cambered collars, plain arch-braces
with open spandrels, butt-purlins, ashlar-posts (1 sole-plate
visible). The 2 middle trusses have lost their collars and
braces; that to W has lost 1 principal rafter. Tie-beam truss
in centre with wattle and daub on E side. Some blackening; not
certainly blackening from open hearth. In rear backyard wall a
late-medieval/early post-medieval stone corbelled fireplace
(probably re-set) placed high up.
