‘Flore’s House in Oakham’ by Nick Hill

Nick Hill from English Heritage turned his spotlight on to one of Oakham’s eldest houses, that of wool merchants William and later Roger Flore. He showed details of the house’s construction and explained how it developed around the original central hall area. Dendrochronology has dated the original house to the 1350’s, with the present North section being constructed in the mid 17th century. Nick also highlighted some of the details of construction and architectural interest to an interested and appreciative audience.
