SP4635 ADDERBURY MANOR ROAD
(South side)
Adderbury West
6/81 Little Manor and attached
08/12/55 garden wall
(Formerly listed as Little
Manor, Bloxham Road)

GV II
Substantial house, possibly a manor house. Probably early C17 or earlier,
extended late C17, C19 and C20. Coursed squared marlstone with wooden lintels;
Stonesfield-slate and plain-tile roofs with stone-and-brick stacks. 2-unit plan
extended to 3 units with added rear wings. 2 storeys plus attic, 2 bays to right
of 4-window front are earlier and have a low chamfered plinth; right bay has
renewed casements, but left bay retains 2-light leaded casements to both floors.
Added left unit of range has a higher plinth and has two leaded 2-light
casements at each floor and a doorway adjoining the older section. Roof has
gable parapets with moulded projecting kneelers, stone-based stacks to right of
centre and to both gables, and has 3 small 2-light roof dormers. C19 and C20
wings return from both ends of the range: the right wing in stone with gable
parapets; the left in painted brick. Interior: central room has 2 cross beams
with heavy chamfers and stops, and has an open fireplace with chamfered
bressumer; room above has intersecting stop-chamfered beams forming six ceiling
sections and has a chamber fireplace. Earlier section of roof has a diagonal
ridge beam and stop-chamfered butt purlins, possibly re-used. A gateway and a
short length of wall to right of the house link to a C17/early C18 section of
the boundary wall on Horn Hill Road which extends from a C20 gable to
approximately 60 metres to south. The rubble wall, approximately 2 metres high
has a stone-and-cement coping, and incorporates a re-set pointed-arched doorway
in a chamfered stone surround with bar stops which may be medieval; the plank
door has ancient reused hinges. Reputed to have been the manor house of the
manor held by the Doyley family.
