Description

This information is taken from the statutory List as it was in 2001 and may not be up to date.

WASHFORD PYNE LOWER BLACK DOG SS 80 NW 6/282 Middleway - GV II

House, former blacksmith's house. Mid C17 with C19 addition. Plastered cob on rubble footings; rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatched roof. Now a 3-room plan house facing north. The left (eastern) room is a C19 addition. It has an end stack. Central room has axial stack in former end wall. It is not clear whether small right end room was heated by now-blocked fireplace in end wall, now party wall with adjoining house. 2 storeys. Irregular front of 3 variously-sized late C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars to ground floor and C19 horizontal- sliding sash first. C20 door left of centre but probably a door originally situated at right (west) end. Gable-ended roof. Rear elevation includes another C19 horizontal-sliding sash with some original crown glass panes on first floor.

Interior: central room shows C17 features; rubble fireplace with soffit-chamfered and straight cut stopped crossbeam, and, at west end, an oak alternate plank screen with bead-moulded edges. Small west end room possibly included blocked fireplace in end wall. Apparently original A-frame roof is only partly accessible.
