Listed building

This cottage retains its proportions and associated small holding outbuildings including one with an unusual vaulted roof. It has fine stonework, surviving front door, fireplace/bread oven and beams/joists.

A building is shown on this site on the Richmond map of 1795.

The existing house structure is predominantly 19th century.

Single storey, five-bay cottage with single storey outbuildings attached to west with pigsties on west gable and lavoir bowl in front corner.

Detached to south west is conical, stone vaulted roofed building, perhaps pigsty although function unknown.

Old Jersey Houses

A brief entry in Vol Two refers to the datestone and notes that the valley stream which separates the parishes of St John and St Mary runs at the bottom of the garden. Behind the house rise steep and very early cotils. The steep track to the south of the house is named Petticoat Lane.
