Listing Text

8/184 Town Hall
Town hall. Rebuilt 1806, probably incorporating part of the former early-C17
structure. Brick with marlstone dressings, and rendered timber-framing;
Welsh-slate roof with brick gable stack. Rectangular plan of 3 by 2 bays on an
island site. 2 storeys. Ground floor has an arcade of segmental arches on square
brick piers with stone bases and impost blocks; the bay at the northern end is
built up but the rest is open. Rendered upper floor rising from a rendered band
has renewed casements: a pair of 2-light windows in the south gable wall, a
3-light window to north with a similar window in the gable, and two 3-light
casements in the east wall. Steep-pitched roof. Interior: intersecting chamfered
beams and lateral beams morticed for braces relate to an earlier wholely
timber-framed structure and appear to be in situ; first-floor walls and roof have
no visible work earlier than C19. Early-C19 joinery and benches in council
(Buildings of England: Oxfordshire: p571; VCH: Oxfordshire: Vol XI, p87)
