Blands Farmhouse


Small farmhouse. Probably late C17, enlarged in C18; altered.
Mixed random rubble to the right-hand half and thin coursed
rubble to the left, with large quoins and a stone slate roof.
Single-depth 2-unit plan in 2 builds, with a small added
outshut to the rear.
EXTERIOR: 2 low storeys and 2 windows; with a stone slate
drip-course over the ground floor of the right-hand half, and
a quoined vertical joint in the centre of the 1st floor
(defining this half). At ground floor immediately left of this
junction is a square-headed doorway with remains of a former
small gabled porch; to the left is a square 12-pane fixed
window with one opening pane (at the left end of the centre
row), and to the right is an oblong 6-pane fixed window and a
former 2-light mullioned window with a chamfered surround. At
1st floor each half has a rectangular 9-pane fixed window with
one opening pane, that to the right larger. The right-hand
gable has a large square corbelled chimney, the left gable has
a later lateral chimney. Left gable wall has small square
window near rear corner of 1st floor. Rear: very small square
fire-window near east corner; low pantry window in rear wall
of outshut and doorway in west wall.
INTERIOR: very thick lateral partition wall to right of
entrance, with original main doorway to house (suggesting a
former through-passage between byre and house); stone flagged
floor, 2 chamfered axial beams and exposed joists in housepart
to right; staircase mounting along back wall of this room.
Rare survival of main features of very small farmhouse
(probably formerly a 1-unit dwelling), little altered in C20.
