from the current (Nov 2007) Owner:
cottage can be traced back to 1275 and was a medieval hall originally.
It is grade II* listed building putting in the top 6% of all listed
buildings (grade 1 and grade 2*) and South Oxfordshire District Council
said it is the 6th oldest inhabited cruck construction house in
England....don't know how much truth there is to that....maybe for its
We bought it 1 year ago and only just got planning permission to
renovate it as it hadn't been touched for 50 years. Much of the main
fabric of the building has been replaced and added to over the years but
the cruck beams are still there and are still holding the place up!
3 families lived there until the 50s!"
you can see from the pictures above it was in the process of being
re-thatched when I passed by on November 20, 2007
