10/42 Thorne Farmhouse


Manor chapel, now farmhouse. C14 chapel enlarged subsequently as dwelling, reroofed,
largely refenestrated and extended late C20. Render over rubble, shallow pitch slate
roof, brick stacks gable ends of main block. Plan: east end of chapel and entrance, west
end probably rebuilt, south wing added, and north-west and south-west lean-to additions.
North front: 2 storeys, 4 bays, all windows late C20 reconstituted stone Tudor-style
except for end bay left which has full-height pointed arch 2-light cinquefoil-headed
window, mullion renewed; to right noulded pointed arch doorway with hoodmould, 2-light
window above with 3- and 2-lights to right on both floors; 2 storey, one bay lean-to
addition lit on re-entrant angle only with 2-light windows end bay right. East gable
end unlit but remains of part of window said to have been found in wall during
restoration: no longer visible. South front: the only window opening of interest is full-
height pointed arched 2-light window without cusping, chamfered rere arch. Interior: late
20, north-east window is cut internally by floor, large open fireplace in the south wing
gable end. Roof trusses said to have been replaced in C20. It is not clear whether the
west end of the chapel survives within the farmhouse or not. The chapel was probably
used as a farmbuilding during the C18 and C19 when most of its features were
presumably lost. The manor house was destroyed by fire in the mid C19 and the chapel
then became a dwelling. It was licenced in 1377, 1381 and 1400. (Leeson Day, Holsworthy, The Devonshire Association Parochial Histories, 1934)
