SP 3027-3127
(south side)
- No 6
House. Possibly early C16 as it is traditionally known as the earliest house
in Chipping Norton, but more likely to be C17 in origin and displaying the C16
fenestration of the old Grammar School which may have been reused for No 6 when
the school was demolished. Coursed and square rubble stone with stone dressings
and a gabled machine tiled roof. L-shaped plan of 2 storeys. The churchyard
facade comprises 2 bays and a gabled end. The first 2 bays have one light Tudor
arched windows to the upper floor set within moulded surrounds. These windows are iden-
tical to those on the Guildhall. The lower floor has a similar window and a larger opening
with 6-pane casements. The gable end has 2 C19 mullioned windows with dripstones
and a C19 plank and batten door. Similar Tudor headed blocked openings appear
on the N end and there are further examples on the E front. Many of these have
been renewed and it is therefore impossible to tell if they are in fact genuine
C16 survivals.
