STEEPLE ASTON NORTH SIDE SP4726, SP4725 (North side) 8/115, 9/115 Nos.1 and 2, Almshouses 08/12/55 (Formerly listed as Almshouses (Radcliff's Hospital) GV II

Pair of almshouses. Probably c.1660; altered c.1814 and extended C20. Coursed squared marlstone with limestone dressings; Stonesfield-slate roof with stone-and-brick gable stacks. Single-unit plans with added wings. One storey plus attic raised to 2 storeys. Symmetrical front has two 2-light stone-mullioned windows with labels, two old plank doors in chamfered 4-centred stone doorways, each inscribed with the initials "SR", and at first floor in later rubble walling has two 3-light casements with lattice glazing. The left cottage (No.2) has a stone sundial with the date "1814". Gable walls show a raised eaves line. Small single-storey extensions flank the range. Interiors not inspected. Built by Brasenose College, Oxford, but the initials probably refer to Dr. Samuel Radcliffe, principal of the college and rector of the parish. (Buildings of England: Oxfordshire, p707)
