House, Inn and shop. RCHM 76. C15-C16 but has been altered. The North
front is a 3-storeyed timber-framed front with an overhang remaining above
a modern shop front. There are cellars and the front has a moulded cornice
and a parapet. In the lst and 2nd floors are 3 sash windows. On the West
side of the passage way on the East of the house, which leads to the Chequers
Inn, is some original C15 studding with the remains of two original timber
doorways one with roses on the lintel; there are some original moulded beams
on the lintel over the way. The Chequers Inn forms the back of No 132 and
consists of a 3-storeyed range of ancient date facing East and now covered
with modern iron balcony and external staircase; at its North end and in
the 2nd floor is an original C17 3-light Venetian window in a restored wood
frame and above this, to the West, shows a steep-pitched gable. To the South
of this range is a C17 2-storeyed roughcast extension but the cellars are
probably older. A range (possibly C17 in origin) on the East side of the
yard, being the kitchen of the inn, consists of 2-storeyed coursed rubble
with a Welsh slate hipped roof, in the South of which is a. gabled attic dormer;
in the ground floor are modern windows but those in the lst floor appear
to be C18. Interior. RCHM page 166a. Includes some Cl5 stone panelling,
a C16-C17 panelled ceiling and a C17 stone fireplace. History. Probably
built by Alderman Richard Kent early in C16 when it was known as Kent's Hall.
(Oxford History Society XXXIX. 172-3 XV, l50).
