Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

This is a grand late 18th century farmhouse retaining its character and fine external stonework. Its sits well in the landscape along the curving valley.

Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Two- storey, ten-bay farmhouse range with single storey wings to east and west. Outbuildings to northeast.

Old Jersey Houses

The entry in Vol Two noted that extensive repairs were undertaken on the house in 1973, in the course of which some stone fireplaces were found, 'of the simple undecorated style which were perhaps never meant to be uncovered'.

"Some nice mid-18th century panelling in the west ground floor room was removed in order to expose the stonework. There was a dado rail all round the room, and the window surrounds, shutters and sashes were all contemporary, as were two other windows on the first floor.
"The front door, with some bottle glass in the lights above it, has six panels and is exceptionally wide, measuring 49 in"

Notes and references

  1. If ever a set of datestones gave the lie to the common misinterpretaion as marriage stones, these are they. Three stones for the same couple, who married in 1775, and then erected stones during the course of work on their home three, nine and 15 years later
