2/98 The Vicarage -


Vicarage. C18 with probably earlier core, remodelled circa early and later C19. Shale rubble and cob walls, partly slate-hung to south east side, slate sills, wooden lintels. Scantle slate roofs with gable ends. Brick chimneys over some gable ends and over 1 cross wall. Irregular evolved plan: circa mid C18 front south west range with 2 equal size reception rooms flanking central cross passage, shallow service room under integral outshut behind left-hand room and stair behind right-hand room linked to probably original range at right angles, heightened in C18 and retained as service wing, then another service range added parallel to an adjoining rear outshut, then extended to left and finally at right angles to rear left. 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window south west front with central doorway. Original hornless 16-pane sashes to first floor and circa early C20 French windows to ground floor. Chamfered and stopped wooden lintels. Slightly projecting boxed eaves. South east front has barred window to the coal cellar under the stair. Interior partly inspected: some good quality C18 detail survives, including: stairs with column turned balusters; some field panelling, completely panelled to left hand room with moulded wooden cornice, and 2-panel doors, some with HL hinges. This vicarage was the home of Richard Polwhele, historian, writer and poet, when Rector between 1794 and 1821. Polwhele was also Justice of the Peace and when Captain Bligh was mistakenly arrested for spying while carrying out survey work on the Helford River, Polwhele had him put in the village lock up, a small room in the vicarage. However they later became friends. (church guide).
