HAMPTONNE

The back of the Langlois House
Hamptonne is the site of a traditional Jersey farm. It has many buildings, including houses and outbuildings.

Houses

The buildings are good examples of different styles of Jersey architecture, as they are from different centuries.

The kitchen
The kitchen

The architecture of the Langlois house is similar to that in medieval Brittany. The rooms below were used for the livestock, whilst the rooms above were for the family.

The Hamptonne house was extended and transformed a number of times. A second storey was added in the 16th century, and another two-storey extension was built at the end of the 17th century.

The Syvret house was built on the site during the 1830's. It is the most recent house on the site. The rooms are extremely high, and are typical of the large houses built in St. Helier at the time.

Outbuildings

The washhouse
The washhouse

Farm outbuildings became more important during the 19th century, as they were converted into amenities for the farmers and their families.

The northern yard was created in the late 19th century. It contained stables, a carriage house, a bakehouse, a washhouse, farm-labourers' accommodation and an open shed.
