Haines Hill, Broad Hinton

Haines Hill contains a fine long gallery typical of the houses of the Elizabethan period. Formerly built in the H form with several courtyards, the house was enlarged in the reign of Queen Anne when the ends of the gallery were rebuilt. In 1760 James Edward Colleton added a new front. Captain Garth added the servant's wing in about 1825.

Possibly first built by the Hide family, by 1593 Haines Hill had became a residence of the Windebank family. Sir Thomas Windebank died in 1607 and was succeeded by his son, Francis, who was appointed Secretary of State in the reign of Charles I.

After the demise of the Windebanks, Haines Hill passed to the Bigg family. They retained possession until the 18th century. In 1736 the house was acquired by James Edward Colleton.
