8/115, 9/115 Nos.1 and 2, Almshouses
08/12/55 (Formerly listed as Almshouses
(Radcliff's Hospital)

Pair of almshouses. Probably c.1660; altered c.1814 and extended C20. Coursed
squared marlstone with limestone dressings; Stonesfield-slate roof with
stone-and-brick gable stacks. Single-unit plans with added wings. One storey
plus attic raised to 2 storeys. Symmetrical front has two 2-light
stone-mullioned windows with labels, two old plank doors in chamfered 4-centred
stone doorways, each inscribed with the initials "SR", and at first floor in
later rubble walling has two 3-light casements with lattice glazing. The left
cottage (No.2) has a stone sundial with the date "1814". Gable walls show a
raised eaves line. Small single-storey extensions flank the range. Interiors not
inspected. Built by Brasenose College, Oxford, but the initials probably refer
to Dr. Samuel Radcliffe, principal of the college and rector of the parish.
