Full Description

During alterations at Dunns Court two lovely inglenook fireplaces were opened up as well as an old faggot oven. A hiding place for valuables was found in the stone floor where a mat would have covered it. The outbuildings had stalls for carthorses, being the Manor Farm at one time. [1] This structure appears to be present on the 1841 Porlock Tithe map, where it is larger than the remaining building. [2]
