9/53 The Royal Oak


Public house. A long 3-cell C16 main range, in 2 main phases; early-mid C17
wing to rear forming L-shape plan. Timber framed, mainly plastered; ground
floor of main range partly encased in C20 red brick. Plaintiles to front
slope of main range, otherwise pantiles. 2 storeys. 4 windows, mainly C18-
Cl9 casements; C20 single storey brick addition set forward. 3 boarded doors.
Internal stack between hall and parlour and a smaller later stack to the left.
Early-mid C16 parlour end, the remainder of the main range added at a slightly
later date, undoubtedly replacing medieval work. The stack is a mid C16
insertion into a smoke bay between the 2 ranges. Some good heavy studding
with reversed bracing; various diamond-mullioned windows or evidence for them.
At the service end, a blocked ground floor window with 4-centre arched head:
this was probably a shop window. Open fireplace in hall with embattled
lintol. A similar but mutilated lintol over the parlour fireplace has been
shortened and re-set. Plain crown-post roof over parlour, with arched braces
from crown-post to collar purlin. Clasped purlins with arched wind-bracing
over the remainder of the range.
