1. GREAT WALTHAM THE VILLAGE
5213 (North Side)
(formerly listed as
house and shop immediately
TL 6913 23/190 29.12.52. to east of church)
Standing to the east of the Church set back in Banbury Square, a late C16 timber-framed
and plastered house built on a half H shaped plan occupying a commanding position
on the approach to the village from the east. It was altered in the C18 and C19
and considerably restored in the C20. It now has the timber-framing exposed.
2 wings extend on the east front with red brick gable ends, partly rebuilt, and
a central 2 storey porch projects on the front. 2 storeys. The windows are mainly
C20 restorations, mullioned and transomed casements with lattice leaded lights.
There are a number of small original windows on the west front. Roof tiled.
The house is remarkable for its 4 tall, original, chimney stacks, each with 2
octagonal shafts with moulded bases and spurred capps. 2 of the stacks rise from
the end gables of the projecting wings on the east front and each has a diamond
shaped ornamental plaster panel in the base. (RCHM 10).
All the listed buildings in the Village form a group (Dweina and No 1, Elm Cot and
Lime Tree Cottage and Almshouses are buildings of local interest).
