Abstract:
A comprehensive historic building survey has been completed at Kelton Mains Farm by CFA Archaeology Ltd in order to inform the future conservation needs for this 18th-century farmhouse. Documentary evidence points to the building being used by the Laird of Threave Estate prior to the construction of Threave House in the early 19th-century. The Survey identified four key phases. The primary phase dates to the mid-18th century and comprises a rectangular single-gabled block. The second phase dates to the early 19th century when the building was substantially enlarged by the addition of the north wing. Minor alterations relate to Phase 3, before the demolition of the north wing in Phase 4 during the 1950s. As a consequence, the building reverted back to its original plan, with part of the second block being returned and a new cat-slide roof with dormers added. A survey of the roof timbers confirmed that the original oak joists still survive in situ.
