6/13 Hayne Barton


House. Circa early C17 with some later C17 refurbishment, wing possibly late C17
addition. Colourwashed rendered stone rubble ; bitumen-painted slate roof, gabled at
ends ; left end stack with stone shaft ; rear lateral stack with truncated shaft,
front right stack with brick shaft projecting through roof, end stack wing.
Plan: The circa early C17 main range is 4 rooms and a through passage ; lower end to
the left; hall, inner room and a small unheated service room to the right of the
passage, external stair on rear wall of hall. A 1 room plan kitchen at right angles
to the rear of the lower end is difficult to date but may be a late C17 or later
kitchen wing. The hall and inner room were refurbished in the circa late C17 and the
inner room stack may be an addition of this date. A single storey rear lean-to now
encloses the stair projection, the accommodation has been extended into a former
outbuilding adjoining the left end and the'partition between the hall and inner room
has been removed.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 6 window front with a good ovolo-moulded C17 door
frame with decayed stops to the through passage to left of centre. Separate entrance
into unheated right hand room. Small 2- and 3-light probably C19 timber casement
windows with glazing bars. At the left end of the house the accommodation has been
extended into an adjoining outbuilding which has a separate entrance and probably re-
sited ground floor ovolo-moulded mullioned window. The right gable end wall of the
main range has 2 probably re-sited C17 small mullioned windows to the first floor.
Interior: High quality early and late C17 features. 2 plank and muntin screen to the
passage which has a rear doorframe with a cranked head. The hall and inner room
(partition removed) have a good late C17 plaster cornice and 2 deeply chamfered
plastered - over cross beams with ornamental plaster moulding. The inner room front
corner fireplace has a plaster chimneypiece with festoons of flowers. Cranked
doorframe to stair off hall ; plank and muntin screen between inner room and right
end room. Good circa early C17 panelled doors, some rehung. The lower end room is
also impressive with 2 very deeply-chamfered cross beams with step stops ; massive
fireplace with a chamfered lintel and the remains of 2 bread ovens. To the right of
the fireplace a large timber post projects into the room. The timber is rounded at
the end and a modern wall has been built below it. It may have been part of a stair
arrangement adjacent to the fireplace or possibly associated with a walk in smoking
chamber. The kitchen wing has no exposed timbers but a large fireplace with a
probably C19 lintel and 2 bread ovens. C18 joinery on the first floor suggests that
the axial passage is probably of this date.
Roofspace not inspected but said to have clean A frame trusses (Hulland).
A C17 house with impressive interior features.
Hulland, Charles, "Hayne Barton, Shillingford, Bampton", survey record, n.d.,
deposited in West Country Studies Library.
