Market Place
Henley-on-Thames
RG9 2AA

25 Market Place has a plain red brick façade with C18th sashes, of which three are mock windows, inserted for symmetry, to accommodate the oak beams of a two bay timber-framed building. A long wing behind this retains its original roof trusses, one of them a very fine scissor brace truss, which has been dendro dated 1470/1. There is also a smoke bay with a queen stud truss, indicating possible commercial use of the building (it was the Rose & Crown PH in the  C19th  – see A. Cottingham ‘ The Hostelries of Henley’, also for details of ownership from 1585 onwards)
