4/110 Hey Farmhouse


- II*

Detached farmhouse. Circa 1500 and later. said to have been built as a grange to nearby Forde Abbey (Dorset). Local stone rubble; Ham stone ashlar dressings; Welsh slate roof between high coped gables suggesting former thatch; one brick and one ashlar chimney stack. 'L'-plan; 2 storeys, 3-bay south elevation. Corner buttresses, angled on south-west corner and square on south-east: hollow-chamfered mullioned windows in chamfered recesses, of 3, 4 and 4 lights to ground floor and 2, 4 and 5 lights to first floor; the lower windows deepened; the windows to bay 1 have deeper and more heavily moulded labels whereas the remainder are of the more usual C17 pattern: loft of lower bay 2 is a projecting porch with a segmental-arched outer doorway and boarded inner door in a cambered-arched recess. Plain east gable: extension to rear. The west gable has an angled buttress to each corner, a small squint window and a projecting chimney with offsets. The rear elevation has, towards the west end, two 2-light cinquefoil cusped windows set under deep square lintels, and, obscured by a late C20 extension, a further such window at ground floor level, and a cambered-arched doorway. Internally. a 2-room plan to the front, kitchen wing to rear, and a stairway rising between them. the entry to west room at front and back. but probably further east originally; west room has high 4-panel ceiling with slightly cambered beams having hollow-step-ogee moulding, a modern fireplace set within the major west gable fireplace; east room has 3 crossbeams,2 cambered and one flat, this last probably the head of the passage screen; cambered arched fireplace in rear wall backing onto the kitchen fireplace, now with inserted grate but known to have had a bread oven: cellar below: first floor west room has 2 fireplaces, both with flat chamfered lintels, of stone to west and of timber to the larger north fireplace. Roof to wing probably Cl9, of reused timber, but main roof has arch-braced collar beam trusses, mostly closed at some time, with 3 rows purlins each side and windbraced, the east end differing in detail from west. Previous description in 1958 lists speaks of possible extension further east, but no obvious indication of this. (YAG Report, unpublished SRO, undated).
