THE GREEN, Blackmore
House. C17 and early C19, altered and extended in C20.
Timber-framed, plastered and weatherboarded, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles. C17 main range of 2 bays with early
C19 external stack at right end; and original wing of 2 bays
to rear left, forming an L-plan. Early C19 adjacent rear wing
to right, extending slightly beyond main range.
Main range of 2 storeys and attics, rear wings of 2 storeys.
C20 single-storey lean-to extensions to right and rear of rear
wings, roofed with corrugated red clay tiles. 2-window range
of early C18 sashes of 8+8 lights. Off-centre moulded 6-panel
door with moulded flat canopy on profiled brackets, all early
C19. One stone step. Weatherboarded dado at front and left
side, the remainder plastered. All other windows are C20, some
being sashes in early C19 style, some casements. C20
half-glazed door to left; C20 6-panel door and glazed door to
INTERIOR: hardwood frame, unjowled posts, primary straight
bracing, all studs jointed and pegged in original part. At
time of survey, March 1989, the ground floor had been cleared
to form one undivided space (apart from 2 stairs to separate
dwellings above) for use as a crafts centre, but disused since
1984. The original stack in the front bay of the left rear
wing had been removed, and the middle post of the rear wall
severed. Much C20 framing in re-used hardwood had been
substituted. Above the ground floor of the front range is an
original chamfered transverse beam with lamb's tongue stops,
with plain joists of vertical section (some renewed). The rear
bay of the original rear wing retains a chamfered axial beam
with lamb's tongue stops, and some original plain joists of
vertical section. On the first floor the original structure is
undisturbed, with similar chamfered beams, joists plastered to
the soffits but probably all original. Both original ranges
have clasped purlin roofs with arched collars, undisturbed
apart from minor alterations to the attic of the front range.
Photographs of c1900 show this house with the original
internal stack, and a third stack to the rear of the right
wing, the front windows and door as at present, with different
windows on the left side.
