Hi Susan

You've started a challenge in our family - my sister thinks that Bede House Row may be at the other end of William Dalby St (Gas St) to the Westgate end.  She remembers an old disused cinema that had a large house next door (she thinks it may have been Bede House) and then a row of house in a little alley at the side - possibly Bede House Row.

I'll do a bit of digging when I visit Oakham - its got us all thinking now.

Jill

Morning i googled Bede House Row Oakham and it brought up an estate agents website selling 'Thaxia1' which was once a row of 8 cottages converted in the 1990's so if you google like i did and it gives the estate agents details they might hold more info.

Hi Toni

I tried googling for Thaxia1 and I think it must have been moved from the Estate Agents pages; however the search results still came up with the address - the postcode was LE14 2SF, which is near Stapleford not Oakham.  So I think this must have been a different set of Bede houses than the ones near St Johns and St Annes.  There is another set near Lyddington too. 

I've asked my mum to see if she can remember Bede House Row but no luck I'm afraid.  I think I'll have to take a trip to the Records Office when I get up to Oakham!

Hi both

Have you seen the British Pathe film site - they have a few films of old Oakham, I'm afraid it doesn't show Bede House Row but has got some great shots of Oakham High St, Dean St and the main park in Oakham - Cutts Close:

Hi Helen & Toni

We are the Leicestershire & Rutland Records office today - and guess what?  Bede House Row was later renamed Westgate - isn't that amazing.  So I was actually born on the road you were looking for!

I'll see if I can find some old photos of Westgate aka Bede House Row!

You will be able to find Bede House Row on www.maps.nis.uk.  It is on Rutland Sheet IX.NW revised 1928.  You will need to click on Rutland then OS six-inch England and Wales 1842-1952.

Hope this helps!

Thank you  - definite proof that Bede House Row was later renamed Westgate - I was born at No. 13!
