Introduction

Bluntington Farm House, Chaddesley Corbett, Worcestershire. Historic Building Recording and Interpretation

In July 2007, Birmingham Archaeology undertook a programme of building assessment and recording at Bluntington Farm House, Chaddesley Corbett, Worcestershire (NGR SO 8965074357). The work was undertaken at the request of the planning archaeologist for Worcestershire County Council in relation to a planning application for alteration and refurbishment of the building. A measured survey of the timber-frame, plans and a photographic survey of the building were made, together with a written description of the existing structure.

Historical research and map regression analysis was undertaken confirming the 17th century date of the house. The timber-frame survived throughout much of the house but was in need of repair and conservation. Alteration to the internal areas of the house had been limited and the house maintained substantial elements of the original layout as well as the overall character of the building. The original layout conformed to a two-cell main range and northern wing. The north wing displayed decorative ashlar sandstone around the ground floor whilst the remainder of the original build was in square timber-frames, four panels high. Later alterations included 18th century replacement of the wattle and daub with brick nogging and the addition of 19th century brick-built extensions to the west.
