The Hyde Farmhouse
(Formerly Listed as:
MOUNTNESSING ROAD, Blackmore The Hyde)


House. Early C15 and c1600, extended in C18/19 and C20.
Timber-framed and weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red
clay tiles. Main range of 2 bays facing NE with C19 external
stack at right end, and late C16 axial stack near left end,
surviving from a medieval hall range on the same site. Early
C15 cross-wing to left, and C18/19 extension to rear with
internal stack at left side, forming an L-plan. C20
conservatory to rear of main range.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. The front elevation of the cross-wing has
on each floor one C19 casement of 4+4 lights. The main range
has on each floor 2 early C19 horizontal sashes of 6+6 lights,
and a small C20 top-hung casement in an original aperture
above a C20 gabled porch with half-glazed door to left. The
roof of the main range is substantially higher than that of
the earlier cross-wing, overlaying it with a gablet above the
ridge. Grouped shafts on main stack. The left elevation of the
cross-wing is of painted brick on the ground floor, plaster
above, inscribed with the date 1973, with C20 casements and a
half-glazed door. A late C19 pump is attached to this wall
near the front corner. The right and rear elevations are
INTERIOR: the cross-wing has an underbuilt jetty, heavy plain
joists of horizontal section jointed to a chamfered binding
beam with central tenons, and a blocked original stair trap at
rear right. Large wood-burning hearth rebricked at the sides,
and an inserted post in front of it, replacing the former
storey post between the bays. Jowled posts, heavy studding
with curved tension braces trenched to the outside. Groove for
sliding shutters in soffit of front tie-beam, infilled with
plaster. The rear tie-beam is severed for a corridor. Cambered
central tie-beam. Wallplates and tie-beams are chamfered with
mitred stops. Crownpost roof complete, with plain square
crownpost and 4 axial braces. The rafters at the right side
project into an unused space by the stack. The main range has
chamfered binding and axial beams with lamb's tongue stops,
and plain joists of vertical section. On the ground floor the
studs between the 2 original rooms have been removed. Wide
wood-burning hearth with 0.33m jambs and shallow brick arch,
reinforced in the C20 with an inserted relieving beam above
and an iron arch below. On the first floor the original
partition between the rooms is intact, with twin matching
curved tension braces to a central post, and butted studding.
The ceilings are similar to the floor below, but probably
inserted soon after construction, for the joists are supported
on wedge-shaped clamps; the rear one is strengthened with
modern bolts. Clasped purlin roof, arched spacers between the
purlins, the wattle and daub of the partition at the left end
almost complete. Some reused smoke-blackened rafters, probably
from the former hall on the same site. There are several old
ledged doors in the house, with original wrought-iron hinges;
one on the ground floor of the left range is of rebated
planks, indicating an origin before the C18.
