Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Historic farm group. The 17th and 18th century row of buildings, with the 19th century outbuildings, form a cohesive group which contributes to the roadside setting. The group retains its historic proportions and character. Chestnut Farm displays Jersey’s vernacular tradition in the use of local materials and details, whilst emulating the polite architecture of Georgian fashion with a continuing local character.

Particularly distinctive features are the cider house (found in north-west France and south-west England).

The eastern section is considered to be early 17th century and the western section early 18th century. McCormack identifies a tourelle of medieval origin. The building is shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

A school was held in the west room by the Misses Agnes until 1912.
