Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

This cohesive farm group shows developments over the centuries, each building with a strong character.

The most historically and architecturally significant is the four-bay house, with 15th century origins and alterations made in 1735 and later. The 1881 outbuilding is also a fine example of its type.

Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

19th century extensions and additions to farm group. Alterations in 1970s.

Two-storey, four-bay house (La Poudretterie) with adjoining two-storey, two-bay wing to west and two-storey, three-bay wing to east. Projecting south from west corner is single storey outbuilding. To east is large detached outbuilding (The Barn), six-bay, two-storey with attic.

Parallel to south is a detached converted outbuilding (Pelles House), five-bay, two-storey with attic, which is now under separate ownership but historically part of the same farm group.

Cart entrance with Tudor arch dated 1881 on keystone. Two levels of loading doors above, all with part-glazed boarded doors.

There is a corbelled granite fireplace, with joggle stones, retained in the west gable of the original house.

Notes and references

  1. This stone has been interpreted by the Datestone Register as representing Noel, but there is no corresponding marriage on record, and it could just as easily represent Neel, Neho. There is a marriage of a Jean Noel to Rachel Le Cras at this time, but the stone very clearly reads MLC
