Abstract:
In October/November 2004 Archaeological Solutions (AS) Limited conducted a programme of historic building recording of the farm buildings at Spain's Hall, Finchingfield, Essex. The recording revealed that the earliest building on site is the late 18th-earlier 19th century dovecote, one of around 60 recorded in Essex, incorporating part of a red brick and flint panel wall seen around the farm. In the earlier-mid 19th century a carriage house was constructed with flint panel lower walls in-keeping with the garden walls. In the mid-later 19th century the large stable block and carriage house were constructed with hayloft, grain store and tack room above. These are good quality buildings and were probably used by the house rather than agriculturally. It reflects the status of the Hall that a large purpose-built carriage house and stable block were required. Two smaller stables were added slightly later and mimic the style of the main carriage house and stable block. In the later 19th century two open shelters were constructed to the rear of the stable block to house carts/machinery and are more agricultural in style, perhaps indicating further mechanisation and/or an expansion of the farm. In the 20th century two lean-to buildings were added to the site to store machinery. The buildings are located at a distance from the Hall, which appears to reflect a conscious effort to keep the two separate. A pathway links the stables to the house so would easily allow the horses and carriage to be brought round.
