2/31 Blampin Farmhouse

Farmhouse. There is a dateplaque of 1617 and the layout and features of the house
are consistent with such a date, some C19 alterations, modernised circa 1975.
Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; the north-east end wall is rebuilt in C19
brick; stone rubble stacks topped with C20 bricks; thatch roof.
Plan: single phase 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing north-west and
built on level ground. The right (south-west) end room is the present kitchen and
it has a projecting front lateral stack. However this stack was built circa 1975
and this room was formerly an unheated dairy or buttery. The centre room is the
original kitchen and it has an axial stack backing onto the former dairy/buttery.
The rear of the passage is now blocked by the present staircase. The left (north-
eastern) room is a parlour with a projecting front lateral stack. 2 storeys with
probably secondary outshots to rear of the former kitchen and dairy/buttery.
Exterior: irregular 3-window front of C20 replacement casements with glazing bars.
The passage front doorway is right of centre and contains a C19 4-panel door behind
a circa 1975 conglomerate stone porch with a thatch roof. Inside the porch is a
small Beerstone plaque inscribed 1617, John Ford. This is reset. It was formerly
over the doorway. Immediately to right is the parlour stack. It is plastered but
sortie of its volcanic ashlar quoins are exposed. Left of centre the wall is propped
by a conglomerate stone buttress with slated offset. The thatch eaves rise as
eyebrows over the centre and left windows and rise to a slightly higher level at the
parlour stack. The roof is hipped both ends and to rear is carried down over the
Interior: most of tne basic structure is original. The parlour crossbeam has ogee-
fillet mouldings and step stops. The fireplace is missing its original lintel but
has volcanic ashlar jambs. The partition between the parlour and passage includes
the remains of oak plank-and-muntin screen. The partition to the kitchen has been
removed. The kitchen has a chamfered crossbeam with runout stops and the large
fireplace here is plastered stone with a chamfered oak lintel. The dairy/buttery
has a plain chamfered axial beam. Most of the roof structure was replaced in the
C18 or C19 and is carried on A-frame trusses of that date. However one original
closed truss remains. It is over the kitchen side passage crosswall. It is a side-
pegged jointed cruck filled witn a close-studded oak frame in which lathes are set
into individual holes to provide a ladder backing for cob infil. There is a doorway
near the back wall which has one original chamfered and step-stopped jamb.
