The following building shall be added to the list:- ST 55 NW BLAGDON STATION ROAD 10/10016 Walnut Tree House II House. C17, possibly with earlier origins. Roughcast over local rubble, exposed to front, with stone coping to Roman tile roofwith brick stacks. Original 2-unit plan with left-end stack to heated room and originally unheated small service room to right, rear central stairs and left-hand stair to rear of open fireplace. 2 storeys. 2-window front with timber lintels over blocked doorway to left, late C20 door to right, 2- and 3-light C19 and C20 casements and 8/8-pane sash to right; probable C18 pegged wooden flame to 3-fight window on ground-floor left. C19 gabled addition parallel to rear, and single-storey additions to right in similar materials. Interior noted as having retained all original stop-chamfered beams and roof trusses with dove-tailed collars and morticing for in-line purlins. Open fireplace to left with wooden bressummer and 2 recesses to rear (one with cockshead hinges to door); solid-tread stairs rise from first-floor to attic above. Another solid-tread wooden stairs to rear wall, set into slight recess. C17 plank and batten doors with scribed edging and original wrought-iron fittings. Reset C17 pegged wooden doorframes. A well-preserved example of the 2-unit plan which became increasingly common from the later C17 in this area: many original interior features, the solid-tread stairs being particularly rare and notable survivals of a formerly common vernacular type.
