Blisland Repointing A Grade 2 Listed Farmhouse

Lime pointing a grade 2 building in Blisland Cornwall

Blisland is a small Cornish village with a population of less than 700. It lies 5 miles north-east of Bodmin.

This is a typical postcard village similar to many throughout Cornwall and Devon with many building dating back hundreds of years.

The heart of Blisland is the pub – The Blisland Inn. A popular drinking spot for locals and tourists alike as many travel to sample the fine selection of real ales.

There are a number of Georgian and Victorian houses in this village but we were called in to repoint a Grade 2 listed farmhouse in lime mortar.

One of the chimney stacks was in a serious state of disrepair. We dismantled it brick by brick, removed the existing lead flashing and rebuilt using the original bricks.

After the structural repairs and chimneys were complete, we started work on the pointing.
