In July 2012 Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook a small programme of building
recording at the Town Hall in Deddington, Oxfordshire.
The building is a small structure constructed in 1806 to replace a previous town hall
of possible early 17th-century date and evidence shows that parts of the building,
particularly the first floor structure, have been reused from a previous building which
may have been the earlier town hall itself. The underside of the first floor has clear
evidence to show that this was from a building that was fully timber framed, or at least
had timber posts at ground floor with arched braces. The former timber framed
building is likely to have been of early 17th century date (or earlier) and it could well
be from the previous town hall.
Although the building is small it is located in a prominent position in the market place
and it significantly adds to the understanding of Deddington as having been a market
town. It has the classic appearance of a small market hall with open-side ground floor
and enclosed upper floor
