  • House & Family History: Little Durnford is a mid-18th century house of six bays of flint and stone checker with gray brick trim. The ground floor features windows that have alternating segmental and triangular pediments. The mid-18th Dining Room is particularly fine, with a plaster frieze and plaster wall panels framing tapestries. The central staircase features a glazed dome.
