Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

La Presse: Historic farm group with 17th century origins [1] retaining character and features with fine stonework on the 18th century farm house and on the later 19th century outbuildings. It remains a cohesive farm group.

Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795. Dwelling on the site originates from the 17th century with an arch and chamfered stone reused in the outbuilding.

La Neuve Presse: An elegantly proportioned three-storey, three-bay, mid-19th century house retaining its historic proportions and character. The plan form has lost some integrity incorporating the extensions, but some good quality historic features remain.
