History

A multi-phase farm range, consisting of a probably C17 corn barn with a farm range of 1751 (now known as 'the Granary') attached at right angles. In the 1990s the building was converted into a dwelling. The roofed carriageway through to the inner farmyard may once have formed a threshing floor. The NE part of the barn has C17 diamond mullions on ground and upper floors, suggesting former habitable use. From the late C17 until the early C19 The Hendre belonged to the Arnold family, and S gable bears the initials of John and Mary Arnold dated 1751.

Gable head carries stone inscribed with initials J and M A dated 1751, below is C20 1 1 casement window in camber headed opening, and on ground-floor, stone stair of former granary rises to camber headed doorway with C20 glazed double doors. To right of gable, set back at far end of yard, is S side of barn. Barn S wall (to right) has first-floor C20 1 1 casement, and ground floor doorway with boarded door. The long E wall of the granary faces into the yard and has, on first floor, four segmental arched voussoired windows with C20 1 1 pane casements and, on ground floor, a broader voussoired opening with C20 glazed doors. Under the cart opening, the upper walls are timber framed with three tall posts and C20 glazing, and on the ground floor is a flat headed doorway with boarded door.
