Cromwell's House

28 High Street

(Note: This is a private residence and is not open to the public)


Cromwell's house at 28 High Street was built in 1640.

Originally an inn, it encompassed houses 26-30 High Street.

It is rumoured that this is where Oliver Cromwell stayed during the siege of Woodstock Manor, although there is no written record of this.

Cromwells House

The ancient mulberry tree still growing in the garden was planted in compliance with a 1603 Act which required inns of a certain standard to plant mulberry trees as a condition of their licence.
