History

Fox and Raglan record this as a two bay hall-house probably built 1500-1550. In C17 this house was encased in stone, gables and a porch added and a floor inserted in the open hall. At the time of the original listing in 1955 all four cruck trusses survived but at the time of resurvey (September 1999) all four trusses were reported to have been destroyed by a fire in the late 1950s. From the late C17 until the early C19 The Hendre belonged to the Arnold family, and the initials of John and Mary Arnold are inscribed on a stone dated 1751 in the gable of the adjoining granary.
