7/106 No 3
(Hayes End Manor) No 5 and No 7
(formerly listed as Hayes End
Farmhouse, and Cottage adjoining
Hayes End Farmhouse to E.)


Formerly one house, now subdivided into two. C15 origins, mostly C17 and C18 with new wing by J.W. Peters, Ham stone
cut and squared, ashlar dressings; west wing has concrete pantiles, replacing thatch, between high stepped coped
gables; no 3 has clay pantiled roof with plain gables, and no 7 has clay pantiles with stepped coped east gable having
obelisk finial; brick chimney stacks. Quadrangle plan: the west wing C17/C18, mostly no 5, of 2 storeys, 2 bays
irregular fenestration. Hollow-chamfer mullioned windows in chamfered recesses; to ground floor of 4, 2, 4, 3 and 3
lights, all with separate labels, and above all 3-light casements of early pattern; all windows rectangular-leaded,
with iron-framed opening lights: to lower bay 2 a chamfered cambered-arched doorway with boarded door, with coped
gabled open porch having a ball finaal; north gable has a single-light window it ground floor level without label, and
square date plaque set high in gable, no longer readable but possibly referring to the raising of the roof in 1760:
south gable has a 4-light mullioned window at first floor level: similar window in east gable of no 7; others of C20
pattern, to both no 3 (mostly north and east wings) and no 7 (south wing). The interiors not seen, but reported in the
west range are a large fireplace in the north room, with former doorway in recess alongside and 3-bay ceiling; central
wide entry with opposing doors and staircase; then a former Hall with 4-unit ceiling having moulded beams and a back
window which is of 2-light ovolo-mould mullioned type; the south room has an ogee-mould cambered arched stone
fireplace. All six roof trusses are of different patterns, a former post and truss with signs of wattle and daub
infill, a jointed cruck, and several others including a totally closed truss of unknown height: some are smoke
blackened, and one bay has windbraces. The whole has been interpreted as a hall house of c1500, with floor inserted
c1600, and with major C18 reshaping. (VAG Report, unpublished SRO, November 1976; VCH, Vol III, l974).
