Oak House, Jackamans’ office at 7 Northgate Street, is a fascinating Grade 2-listed building. A record in 1689 refers to it as a Tudor house under the name of the Royal Oak Inn. It was built near the North Gate of Ipswich Town, and it is believed to have existed since the 15th or 16th century. The building underwent a dramatic refurbishment under the famous architect Thomas William Cotman towards the end of the 19th century and he completely transformed it into an impressive family home. Thomas Cotman was responsible for many imposing buildings in Ipswich and Felixstowe.
