3/176 Haynetown Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Possibly late C16/early C17 fabric but heavily remodelled probably in
late C17, extended at left end in late C18, with C20 alterations. Rendered stone
rubble and cob. Thatch roof with plain ridge, hipped at left end, half-hipped at
right end. Slate roof to single storey kitchen wing with gable end brick stack.
Tall rear lateral stone rubble hall stack with tapered cap, heightened in brick.
Plan and Development. Originally a 3-room and through-passage plan, the rear
doorway blocked. The partially exposed plank and muntin screen on the lower side of
the passage incorporates some reused timbers and may well be reset. In C18, an
additional range of 2 rooms, was added at the left, lower, end which, until
converted to form part of dwelling in late C20, was used as outbuildings; however,
it did incorporate a cob axial stack, which was said to have shown little evidence
of usage. It is possible therefore that this additional range was intended
originally for housing a separate unit or relative for a short period. Probably in
the late C18 or early C19, a leanto dairy was added at the right gable end, and in
the C19 a single storey kitchen wing added to the front of the inner room. The
latter in fact always appears to have been the service end as until the late C20 it
was used as a salting-house and scullery/dairy, was unheated and was of narrow
proportions. In C20 the hall/inner room partition of cob to first floor level only
was removed, and the shaft of the stack heating the lower end demolished. The
original position of the stairs is unknown, the present staircase, probably C19, was
inserted into the lower end of the hall adjoining the through-passage.
2 storeys. 5-window range. Fenestration to added range is C20. Original range
has early C20 2-light casements, 2 of 3 panes per light, 1 of 2 panes per light.
Ground floor has 2-light casement 3 panes per light to left of porch with slate
gabled roof. 3-light hall window 3 panes per light to right.
Interior. Plain chamfered cross ceiling beam to hall. Fireplace lintel replaced.
2 bread ovens but projections demolished. . Partially exposed rear section of plank
and muntin screen to lower side of passage, the headrail chamfered and stopped
midway as if for a doorhead, but at one side only. Some of the muntins are
chamfered but are not mitred, one appears to be a reused doorjamb with the durn cut
out to admit cider barrels.
Roof structure over main range probably late C17 or early C18 has pegged trusses
with straight principals and purlins resting on the backs with pegged lapped
collars. Added range of similar construction but with waney rafters and probably
late C18 or early C19.
