Listing Text

SX 88 SW
5/29 Blatchford Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 origins, thoroughly remodelled and extended in the C18 or C19.
Whitewashed rendered stone rubble; slate roof (formerly thatched) hipped at ends;
axial stack with brick shaft and front left corner shaft to main block, projecting
rear lateral stack with bread oven to wing.
Plan: L plan. The wing, parallel to the lane, is probably the earlier part of the
house, single depth and 2 rooms wide with asingle-storey third room at the left end.
The middle room, heated by the rear lateral stack with an adjacent winder stair
appears to have served as a hall or parlour in the C17: the other rooms are plain
with no visible evidence of an early date. The main block, at right angles to the
rear of the right hand room faces the farmyard and is also single depth, 3 rooms wide
with an unheated entrance hall to the left containing a late C19 stair, a heated room
in the middle with a blocked fireplace and an axial passage to the rear linking the
entrance to a former dairy at the right end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front with an internal porch with porch
seats to left of centre and a C19 front door. 2-light C20 timber casements. The
rear elevation of the wing, which backs on to the road, is blind with a large
projecting stack and adjacent stair projection. The rear elevation of the main block
has a small thatched rustic garden house and a C20 conservatory has been added in the
angle between the main block and the wing.
Interior: The middle room of the wing has an open fireplace with one ovolo-moulded
granite jamb (the other jamb concealed), a timber lintel and C19 brick-lined bread
oven. Timber winder stair adjacent to stack. High ceilings suggest that the roof
and ground floor ceilings may have been raised.
Roof: Not inspected but may be of interest.
