Blagraves House, The Bank, Barnard Castle
Blagraves House, The Bank, Barnard Castle
Blagraves, Nos. 30 and 32 The Bank, Barnard Castle is a complete Tudor (16th Century) house, though it may have an earlier, medieval, origin. It was later altered in 1672. It is a Grade 1 listed building (List Entry Number: 1201313): LinkExternal link

The house to its right (34 The Bank), formerly an inn (the Hat and Feather, later known as the Turk's Head, then the Shoulder of Mutton until 1955; known locally as the Bucket of Blood), is dated 1742. It is Grade II* Listed (List Entry Number: 1218764): LinkExternal link

Numbers 30 and 32 The Bank, this is a grade I listed building. I am not surprised.
Dating from the 16th century, with rework every hundred years since. There is a huge and detailed description in tedious prose in the Historic England listing at LinkExternal link.

The face of the building includes four badly wethered statues of musicians, at least two of which appear to have drone-less bagpipes similar to Cumbrian pipes.

The left hand side includes a magnificent 3 story window bay in ashlar, dating from the 17th century.
