7.9.51 Nos. 18, 20, and 22
(Royal Oak Cottages)


Row of 3 cottages, now office, shop, and 2 cottages. C18, encasing at least part
of an earlier structure; altered. Some internal timber framing; walls of red brick
in Flemish bond, with some burnt headers; red tile roof. Rectangular double-
depth plan in 2 halves, with the office and shop to the left (No.22, probably
formerly all one dwelling), and the cottages (Nos.18 and 20) to the right. Two
storeys, with five 1st-floor windows; the right-hand half has a 3-course band,
but the left half has a continuous fascia board at this level (perhaps covering a
band); Nos.18 and 20 are single-fronted cottages built halls-adjoining, with
coupled doorways (surrounds rebuilt), 12-pane unhorned sashed windows with
gauged brick heads at ground floor, a 9-pane and a 12-pane sash at 1st floor
(the latter with 4 panes in the upper leaf and 8 in the lower); No.22 to the left
has modern shop fronts at ground floor and 3 similar 12-pane sashes above. Roof
half-hipped at left end, chimney in centre of ridge, gable chimney at junction
with side of Royal Oak PH to the right. Interior: the gable wall of No.18 is of
close-studded timber-framing (now visible only in the wing of the Royal Oak,
q.v.), but No.18 contains exposed wall-posts, tie-beam, and wall-plates which
appear to continue into No.20, and the partition wall to No.20 appears to contain
a timber frame (but this property was not inspected internally). The interior of
the shop to the left has been entirely remodelled. No.22 included for group
