Oat Sheaf

Picture source3: Nicholas Duke-Cox


 
The Oat Sheaf was situated on the bank of the River Witham.
 
The 1889 to 1956 maps show it as The Oat Sheaf Inn. The next map in 1972 shows it as The Old Oatsheaf. On 5th August 1824 Cuthbert and Son Auctioned the 'OAT Sheaf....in the occupation of William THORPE' with 'Twenty Acres of Arable and Pasture Land' for the owner J Parkinson Esq. of Bolingbroke. W E Tonge tells us in the 'Chronicles of the Tonge Family' that 'Mrs Mabbot owned the Oat Sheaf and when she had paid the mortgage on it she had about 10 shillings a week to live on'. Recorded publicans are William Thorpe 1824, Dennis Abbot 1856, Mrs Jane Abbott 1861 and George Cook/e 1868 & 1872. From the 1885 Kelly's on the only public house listed in Timberland is the 'Houghton Arms' (probably previously Milnes Arms).
