723-1/15/49 (North side)
28/07/88 Lundishes
(Formerly Listed as:
THE GREEN, Blackmore
(North side)


House and shop, now a house. Early C15, altered in C17 and
late C18. Timber-framed, plastered and weatherboarded with C18
facade of red brick in Flemish bond, roofed with handmade red
clay tiles. Main range of 3 bays facing S, with C17 stack in
rear of right bay. 2-bay cross-wing to right, projecting
forwards. C20 single-storey lean-to extension at left end, and
C20 boiler-house with hipped roof to rear of stack.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. All windows are C20 casements. C20
half-glazed door at right end of main range. C20 pargeting in
traditional geometric patterns. The left gable and the right
side of the cross-wing are weatherboarded. The cross-wing is
jettied to the front, with exposed joists of horizontal
section and 2 original plain brackets. The upper part of the
stack has been rebuilt in the C20, from about 0.80m below
eaves level. The left end of the main roof is hipped, with a
gabled dormer in the hip.
INTERIOR: jowled posts, heavy studding. The left bay of the
main range is much altered; plain joists of reused timber. The
central post of the partition between this bay and the hall
has mortices for an original partition in the left bay, now
missing; there is some reason to believe that this end was
formerly a cross-wing projecting forwards, similar to the
existing cross-wing. The partition at the left end of the hall
has flush curved display bracing, peg-holes of large diameter
for the former 'high end' fixed bench, and an inserted doorway
at the rear end, now blocked; present doorway in front of
central post. C18 partition near right end, separating
original cross-entry from main part of hall, mostly of reused
timber with primary straight bracing and handmade nails. Wide
wood-burning hearth with 0.33m jambs and reused mantel beam
from a still wider hearth, chamfered with a mitred stop near
the left end only. The original rear wall of the hall has been
raised to full 2-storey height in the C18, with primary
straight bracing and light studding. C18 wood-burning hearth
on the first floor, with 0.23m jambs and plain mantel beam.
Clasped purlin roof of hardwood and reused smoke-blackened
rafters from a medieval roof, probably of the same building.
Softwood rafters carry the front pitch of the roof over the
brick facade. The cross-wing has a blocked doorway at the left
end of the jettied elevation, with a 3-centred arch head;
pegging indicates the former presence of arched shop windows.
One of the former twin service doorway is intact, with
chamfered jambs and 3-centred head; the other is blocked, but
the chamfered girt indicates its position. The studded
partition between the bays has been removed and rebuilt at an
early date about one metre to the rear of its original
position to enlarge the shop bay. Plain horizontal joists,
framed round an original stair trap in the left rear corner,
blocked. In the right wall of the rear bay is an unglazed
window, with 2 incomplete diamond mullions. The upper floor is
undivided and open to the roof, with exposed framing. The rear
wall has curved bracing trenched inside the studs; the other
walls have the bracing trenched outside the studs. Unglazed
window in right side of rear bay with shutter rebate in
wallplate; C20 diamond mullions. The wallplates are chamfered
with step stops; near the rear ends they are scarfed,
apparently with tenons and bridles, reinforced with iron
Crownpost roof almost complete. Some rafters in the left pitch
of the rear bay have been severed, apparently for a former
stack, and restored with matching reused timbers. Gauging
holes in all original rafters. Cambered central tie-beam and
one original arched brace, both chamfered with step stops. A
similar arched brace at the right is C20 restoration. Plain
crownpost with curved braces down to tie-beam. The
collar-purlin is a single timber 7.90m long, with 4 axial
braces. Collars complete.
