In the early C19 Hayne was the site of some consciously antique ceremonials recorded
by J.B. Wollocombe in his history of Stowford parish. A quarry in a part of the
grounds known as "the Wilderness" was adapted as a picturesque meeting room for the
local hunt and a stretch of ground to the south east of the house is said to have
been used for archery.
