Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Early 18th century origins. The building retains external historic character and contributes to the cohesion of the group of buildings in this hamlet and defines the roadside.

The interior plan form and features were lost in the 1980s. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

An early 18th century house, possibly 1712 based on a datestone now built into the garden wall. The chimney and fireplace corbels seen today are likely to be of the early 18th century.

The front and back walls of the house collapsed when a new roof was being added in the 1980s.

The farmhouse has wings to west and east. Two-storey wing to northeast returns along north boundary to create U-shaped yard.

The only surviving historic feature internally is the south corbel and reveal of the fireplace in a ground floor room.

Notes and references

  1. The postal address is given as Grand Bourg, which is a district rather than a road. This is a quite distinct area from the better known coastal area of Le Bourg, which straddles the Grouville/St Clement border
