Hayne Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Probably late C15 or early C16, with later modifications. Roughcast
cob; gable-end and half-hipped thatched roof. Originally a 3-room, through-passage
plan house of jointed cruck construction, the service end,(extended by the addition
of another room, probably in the C17), to the left of the passage. The hall and
service end were open to the roof which is smoke-blackened. The inner room was of 2
storeys from the beginning, divided from the hall of a closed truss. A first floor
window in this partition (i.e. between hall and 'solar') noticed by Commander
Williams in 1975, has been removed. The inner room was unheated; inserted axial
stack backing on to the passage heats hall; another axial (originally an end) stack
heats service end; internal end stack heats service end extension. All with brick
shafts. 2 storeys.
Exterior Front: irregular 4 window range; all 3-light C19 casement windows to first
floor; ground floor: 2 entrances, the right-hand doorway is almost centrally placed
and leads into the passage between the service room and the service end extension
(half-glazed door with corrugated iron canopy). Otherwise C19 and C20 2 and 3-light
casement windows. Rear: with 2 late lean-tos; rear door to through-passage with a
debased 4-centred arch, the centre rising almost like a low pediment, chamfered and
pegged (and apparently similar to certain doorways in Somerset). Another door to
extreme left of elevation; planked and studded. 2 and 3-light casement windows
Interior: Hall with deeply chamfered unstopped intersecting ceiling beams forming 6
panes; partition between hall and inner room now of rubble (but possibly originally
a timber screen, as Commander Williams suggests). Plank and muntin screen between
through-passage and service end; service end with roughly chamfered cross ceiling
beam. Axial ceiling beam to service end extension, chamfered, with run out stops to
one end only. Roof: 3 jointed cruck trusses, cranked collars, morticed and pegged
at apex with diagonal ridge piece (Alcock type F2); service end and hall completely
sooted with rafters battening and smoke-blackened thatch intact. Higher end clean,
with hip cruck. Commander Williams was unable closely to inspect the lower end of
the medieval roof and this does not retain its hip cruck; the cob stack inserted at
this point has been heavily stained by soot from the smoke-blackened roof above.
Reference: a full report with plan and sections by Commander Williams, June 1975,
is in the NMR.
