The Haie
The Haie
Now in a striking shade of pink, the house was originally known as "Ruddle Manor" and was constructed by Rolyon Jones around 1770. Not a lot of the original house survives: it was largely rebuilt in the 1850s and renamed "Newnham Park". It was sold on after rebuilding and extended in the 1880s when it was renamed "The Haie", the name it retains to this day. It was converted into apartments (one of which is home to a noisy dog, as we discovered when we accidentally wandered down the drive!) after WWII. The original builder, Ronyon Jones, was one of the promoters of the Bullo Pill Railway Company, who constructed the Bullo Pill tramroad (which passed directly beneath the house in Haie Hill tunnel), and his son, upon inheriting the house and all his father's industrial interests including the tramroad, complained of the tunnel drawing off all the water from the springs which supplied the house. Which is ironic. The approach cutting to the tunnel is marked by the line of trees in the foreground: note the surviving railway fencing.
