(Formerly Listed as:
CHURCH STREET, Blackmore
House. Late medieval, altered in C18 and C20. Timber-framed,
plastered and weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red clay
tiles. Externally this appears to comprise 2 houses, of which
the left is of 2 storeys, the roof axis parallel to the
street, with an internal stack in front of the ridge, and the
right of one storey with attics, also parallel with the
street. C20 single-storey extension to rear of right end.
3-window range of C20 casements. C20 door. The side walls of
the left house are weatherboarded.
INTERIOR: has structural evidence of a cross-wing at the left
end, and a main range to right of it. In the C18 an extension
has been added to the rear of the left house, the walls have
been raised, and it has been re-roofed on the present axis.
Heavy studding, jointed and pegged, is exposed internally in
the left wall of the cross-wing. The front left corner post is
present, but mostly concealed in plaster. 2 posts of the front
wall have been scarfed about one metre below the C18
wallplate, which has a face-halved and bladed scarf. Some
original framing of the rear wall remains. Wide wood-burning
hearth, the mantel beam formed from a reused C15 richly
moulded timber (bowtell in great casement, mutilated at the
top, possibly from the dissolved Blackmore Priory), with C20
grate facing to right. The lower part of the stack is C16 or
early C17, the upper part rebuilt in the C18.
In the right house some original framing is exposed in the
rear wall, with girts jointed and double-pegged to a bay post.
C17 chamfered axial beam with 3 well-cut lamb's tongue stops,
the fourth lost in sapwood. All joists have been replaced.
Both houses have much reused medieval timber. Included for
