8/76 Dacre House, Oak House,
and Oak Cottage
15.3.66 (formerly listed as Dacre
House and house attached
to Dacre House)


Pair of houses, now 2 houses and cottage. Mid-late C18 with early C19
alterations. Coursed squared gritstone and ashlar; grey slate roof. 2
storeys, each house of 3 bays and 2 rooms deep. Quoins. The facades are
identical: a central 6-panel door, the top 2 panels glazed, under a flat
hood carried on console brackets, is flanked by 16-pane sashes in surrounds
with tie-stone jambs; the 3 almost square upper windows to each house are
unevenly hung 12-pane sashes and have plain surrounds. There is a
projecting band at ground-floor window sill level. Gable copings; slightly
projecting end stacks and a large 6-flue stack rear of ridge, centre. M-
shaped roof. Lower bay to far left with shop entrance, not of special
interest. The left-hand double-fronted house is Dacre House; the right-hand
door with bay to its left is Oak House, and the far right bay is Oak
Cottage, reached from the rear of the building. The former Oak Inn, it was
closed in c1915. The style is very similar to Chantry House; these
buildings predate the early C19 rebuilding of the village and are possibly
evidence of an earlier rebuilding begun in the C18.
