The Elm Tree, Cowley

Architect Henry T. Hare who designed a number of significant early 20th Century buildings.


"1902. By H T Hare. Stone plinth, rendered and painted above. 1 storey

and attic, central block with angled wings. 5 light mullion and transom

lattice windows on either side of central door, with tall hood over. 5 light

window on left, 2 3-light windows on right. Central dormer. Steep pitched

tile roof with 2 stacks."


Difficult to capture the angles on this building, the 'wings' are actually angled into a gentle >-< shape when viewed aerially, enhancing the 'flared' feeling.


I notice today that the building has been defaced; the distinctive carved typography above the door has been chipped off by the present incumbents, who've replasterd the panel and stuck their own lettering over it.


This is how it used to appear:
