2/141 Lyneham Farmhouse
House, formerly a farmhouse. Late C16 or early C17, with later additions. Cob and
stone, covered with roughcast. Slated roofs, the roof of left-hand section hipped
on the right. C19 or C20 chimney stack on each gable, the left-hand stack of
exposed yellow brick . In centre of rear wall a large projecting chimney stack of
late C16 or early C17 date. Basically a 3-.room and cross-passage plan with an extra
room at the lower end, but the building has evolved or been drastically altered at
several different periods. There are 3 distinct builds. The earliest part
(probably the former hall) is in the centre; it has an inserted passage of C19 at
left-hand end, leading to an inserted stair at the rear. On its left, separated
from it by a very thick wall, is a further room, probably a parlour added in C17;
this room is shallower than the hall and has a rounded stair turret (stair removed)
at the rear left-hand corner. At the right-hand end of the building, where the
front wall is set back in relation to the remainder, is a second cross-passage with
2 rooms to the right of it. The passage retains some evidence of C16 or C17
building, but the rest of this section appears to be C19. 2 storeys. 4-window
front, with 2 of the windows widely spaced in the left-hand (hall and parlour)
section. Windows are mostly C20 metal or plastic, but the second ground-storey
window from the left is a 3-light C19 wood casement with 6 panes per light, many of
these containing old glass. Right-hand second-storey window is a 2-light C19 wood
casement with 2 panes per light. Doorway between the 2 left-hand windows is early
C19. Bead-moulded door-frame; door is possibly an old plank door with added ribs
and inserted window. Above is a pent-roofed hood on shaped wooden brackets.
Doorway on right, at left-hand end of the set-back section, has a C19 lean-to porch
with solid, roughcast walls; in front wall of porch is a 2-light wood casement
window with 2 panes per light. The left gable of the house has a C16 or C17 slit
window in the upper storey of the stair turret; the window has a thick wood frame
with a sharply cranked head.
Interior: former hall has in rear wall a large fireplace with splayed jambs, its
wooden lintel chamfered with step-stops. Blocked oven at rear having rounded red-
brick. arch and a shallowly projecting stone shelf. Chamfered upper-floor beam with
run-out stops. The room over the hall has a blocked fireplace (now partly exposed
on stair landing) with ovolo-moulded wood lintel having raised run-out stops.
Former parlour has a tall gable-fireplace with rough monolithic granite jambs;
ovolo-moulded wood lintel (probably re-set) has raised run-out stops and a deep
groove (apparently original) above the moulding. The partition between the cross-
passage at the lower end and the room to right of it has part of an old chamfered
beam above; there may be an early partition concealed under boarding. Roof-
structure rebuilt in C19.
The farm formerly belonged to Torre Abbey (D. Seymour, Torre Abbey, 1977, p.121.
