Hardford Lodge, Newtownards :: Shared Description

Hardford Lodge, 65 West Street, Newtownards, currently (August 2017) in a derelict state. The following description (date of creation unknown) comes from the official “At Risk” register “This building is an unusual find in what is a narrow back street running parallel to Regent Street, one of the main thoroughfares in Newtownards. Formerly a house, it is a two-storey gabled building with outward curving wings at each end. Last used as an office, it recently suffered fire damage which has partially destroyed the roof structure, although the building appears sound.”.
Listed with the following description “This building is shown much as today on the OS Map of c.1858-60 and may date from c.1835-40. A slight rear projection appears to have been present in c.1858, however, the present return is probably later. The wing to the east, with its two storey section to the rear, looks awkward and may not be original, however, it appears to have been constructed some considerable time ago. References- Primary sources 1 PRONI Ordnance Survey Maps, 1st Revision, 1860, Co. Down 6. 2 PRONI 2nd valuation, Newtownards, c.1863.”
