BRITON STREET, (north side),
Packhorse Way and Little Oak
2 houses, formerly 1 property. Probably C17 origins with some extension of the C18
and C19 refurbishment. Whitewashed stone rubble ; corrugated iron roof (formerly
thatched) gabled at ends ; massive projecting right end stack with set-offs, rear
lateral stack to main block, lateral stack to rear right wing.
Plan: U plan with a single depth main block, which may have been a 3 room and through
passage arrangement, with rear return wings to left and right forming a narrow rear
courtyard which has been filled in the C20 by a lean-to. The rear right wing appears
to be an C18 addition, date of rear left wing uncertain at time of survey (1986).
The house has been divided, the right end and wing Packhorse Way, the left end and
wing Little Oak.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 + 2 bay front. Packhorse Way, to the right has
a half-glazed front door with C19 pilasters and a cornice to the left and a C19 2
leaf glazed door with margin glazing to the right. Little Oak has a central panelled
Cl9 front door with a rectangular fanlight ; 2-light casement, 6-panes per light to
the left, 3-light casement, 2-panes per light to the right. The 4 first floor
windows are 2-light casements, 2 panes per light.
Interior: Little Oak not inspected but said to have exposed beams and a large
fireplace. Packhorse Way has a C19 plaster ceiling frieze ground floor right and a
reeded doorcase. The roof of the main block is very repaired but appears to be C18 ;
the rear right wing has numbered C18 roof trusses with apexes, pegged and nailed.
The building is sited at the end of Packhorse Way, an overgrown track which formerly
carried wool traffic from Minehead and Watchet to Exeter.
