These three buildings were are of the same date, c1870 and were built by the grandfather or great-grandfather of Mr W Cranch of South Brent (either William Stidston Cranch or John Roope Cranch). They bought the ‘Royal Oak’ Inn and the cottage to the south and demolished them, replacing the inn with ‘Oak House’ and the cottage with two shops.
There is a through way to workshop at the back between Oak House and the two premises to the south. All three are under the same single span slate roof, which is higher than the cottages adjoining to the south. All premises are stone built and rendered with large shop windows on the ground floor and sash windows on the first floor.

Image dated August 2016 shows that number 10 Station Road is still the Lloyds Bank, 10a is 'Fogg's' delicatessen and both appear to have retained their sash windows.
