SX 59 NW
9/212 Durdon Farmhouse
-
GV II
Farmhouse. Probably mid to later C17 but no dateable internal features are visible.
Plastered rubble and cob walls. Gable ended thatched roof extending in catslide at
rear over outshut. 2 gable end brick stacks.
Plan: apparently 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower room to left, but the
central room has no fireplace so its function is uncertain. The outshut extends
along the rear wall and it is possible that it is original but more likely was added
in the C18. C20 stairs have been inserted into the passage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of early C20 3-light casements
apart from right-hand ground floor window and 1st floor one to to right of centre
which are C19 small-paned casements. Leanto C20 porch to left of centre with C20
panelled and glazed door. Row of pigeon holes below eaves to right of centre.
Single storey C18 outbuilding attached at left-hand end with corrugated iron roo
door at its right-hand end and ventilation slit at centre.
Interior: has no visible original features but beams and open fireplaces may have
been concealed by later alterations. Feet of trusses not visible on first floor so
roof timbers unlikely to be original.
This house has been little altered since the early C20.
