Full description

Blithfield Hall country house is of late medieval origin. It is an irregular building entirely covered with stucco that is mainly 16th century. Additions of circa 1740 are probably by Richard Trubshaw, and of the later 18th century perhaps by Charles Cope Trubshaw. It was remodelled in 1820-40 probably by John Buckler in a Tudor Gothic style.
It is a large irregular house with a late-medieval core, although the stuccoed exterior gives a uniform and predominantly 19th century aspect to the building. In 1975 the hall was open to the public during the summer months.
The hall has been the home of the Bagot family since to the late 14th century. (SB, 18-May-2015) <1>
