Type Report
Title Porlock. Doverhay. Barn End. (formerly Lower Doverhay Farm)
Date/Year 1989
Somerset Vernacular Building Research Group report


The building was subject to survey in August 1989. It was noted to be a two storey rubble walled house with a tiled roof, aligned down a slope and with a barn added at the southern (higher) end. It was thought to have been originally of a three room plan with a deep fireplace with oven heating the central hall, which also features a stair turret. It is possible the house had a cross passage or cross entry but the western wall in the property has been rebuilt. There are several chamfered beams in the property, although it was suggested these were not in their original positions. The house was suggested to be of a mid to late 16th Century date.
