ST ALDATE'S STREET 1. 1485 (West Side) Nos 82 & 83 SP 5105 NW 12/455 12.1.54. II* GV 2. RCHM 152. 2 houses and shops. 1 building. C15 in origin, remodelled in early C17. Architecturally an important house. 2-storeyed rubble with 2 timber-framed gabled attic dormers over No 82 and a gable over No 83 with a Welsh slate roof. There is a thin-bricked central stack with diagonally set shafts. In the centre is a passageway, the side of which on the South is partly lined with some C15 studding, and in each house a side doorway. No 82 has on the ground floor a modern 6 light mullion window with the remains of the C17 cornice above it, and in the 1st floor is a C17 6-light stone mullioned window in a moulded frame. In the 2 attic dormers are modern casement lights but the Cl7 cills and brackets remain below them. No 83 has a ground floor shop front and part of the original cornice; above it a 3-sided bay window in which is a C17 5-light stone mullioned window in a moulded frame and having return lights. The gable has moulded barge-boards. Over the central passageway in the 1st floor is a modern 2-light casement window. At the back in the North wall of the South wing is a C17 3-light oriel, with return lights on a scrolled bracket. In the North boundary wall of No 83 and visible from the south, is a blocked 2-light C17 window. Interior. RCHM p 174 b. Includes plaster ceilings which appear possibly to be early C17 but there are on them shields of arms of Robert King, Bishop of Oxford 1546, died 1557; some C17 panelling. In the South side of the passageway is some C15 studding. History. As Margaret (or Mariole) Hall it belonged to Littlemore Priory; known later as Littlemore Hall but what is now visible has no academic connection. (Slater's Medieval Map of Oxford No 4). The whole had a major restoration in 1965. The shop of No 83 features as the Sheep's shop in 'Through the Looking Glass'.

Nos 82 to 92 (consec) form a group.
