(Formerly Listed as:
THE GREEN, Blackmore
House. C17, possibly earlier. Timber-framed, weatherboarded,
roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays facing NW, with
axial stack to left of middle bay, and C18 external stack at
right end. One-bay wing to rear of middle bay, and outshuts to
each side of it, the whole forming a rectangular plan.
Three C20 and three C19 casements in gabled dormers. C20
half-glazed door, with C19 canopy on simple brackets. Gambrel
roof half-hipped at left end, forming 2 catslides to rear. The
rear elevation has two C19 casements. The external stack has
tumbled courses in the shoulders. INTERIOR: chamfered axial
beams, with lamb's tongue stops in the left bay only. No other
framing is exposed. Wood-burning hearth facing to right, with
0.23m jambs, all plastered. C20 grates to left of it and at
right end. 4-plank ledged pine door to stair, C18 or earlier.
This house occupies a visually important position at the east
end of The Green; its weatherboarded and tiled surfaces retain
a village character which some of the other listed houses have
already lost (by 1989) owing to inappropriate modernisation.
Any future replacement of windows should aim to retain this
