PLESSEY, Blyth Valley
NZ 27 NW NZ 229791
3/19 Plessey Hall
House. C17 core remodelled in C18 and again in C19. Coursed rubble with
roughly-shaped quoins and cut dressings; C20 pantile roof. South elevation in
2 sections. Left part 2 storeys, 2 bays. Renewed 12-pane sash windows in
chamfered surrounds, with slightly-projecting sills. Coped gables on kneelers;
stepped-and-banded end stacks. Right part 1½ storeys, 3 irregular bays. To
left, French window in chamfered surround with heavy lintel; similar doorway to
right (now blocked, with 9-pane sash inserted), flanked by 6-pane sashes in
stone surrounds of former 2-light mullioned windows. 4-pane sashes in chamfered
surounds above, in raking half dormers. Coped right gable with stepped-and-
banded stack.

Left return shows French window in chamfered surround with heavy lintel; second
chamfered doorway above, with C20 glazing. Rear elevation: scattered fenestration
includes single-light chamfered windows and small oval window, perhaps re-set.

A complex house difficult to interpret; a blocked window at eaves level on the
north suggest that the C17 house was of 3 storeys. It may have been used as a
farm building in the C18, returning to domestic status in the C19. On an
important medieval site.
