8/35 Lower Goongillings - 10.2.86 II

Small house. Circa early C17 with C18 extension and altered internally in late C19 and late C20. Granite rubble with dressed granite quoins, lintels, stacks and doorframe. Rendered cob at lower left end with stone rubble plinth. Delabole slate roof with gabled end to right and half hipped left end. The roof is carried down at the rear over an outshut. Red clay ridge tiles. Large dressed granite stack at right hand gable end and smaller axial stack towards left hand end with rendered shaft with dripmould; the axial stack was the gable end stack of the original house. Plan: The original house has 2 principal front rooms, the palour at the lower left end heated from an end stack and the kitchen to the right with a large gable end fireplace with an oven. The integral outshut behind the right hand room was probably the dairy. Probably in the C18 a 1-room plan extension with a gable end stack was added to the lower left end. There is direct entry into the right hand kitchen but originally there may have been a cross-passage. In late C20 the partition between the kitchen and parlour was removed, a staircase in the rear outshut was replaced by a staircase between the former kitchen and parlour. Exterior: 2 storeys. 1:3 window range. The 3-windows to the right in the original house are small late C19 4-pane sashes with slate cills, those on the ground floor are slightly larger than those on the first floor. Central doorway with chamfered 4- centre arch granite frame with diagonal stops and old boarded door with wrought iron hinges. The 1-window range to the left is the addition built of rendered cob with C19 2-light casements with horizontal glazing bars, one light of the first floor window has its orignal leaded panes. Rear elevation has various small C19 2-light casements with glazing bars and first floor right a C19 2-light horizontally sliding sash with glazing bars. The back doorway of the outshut has been blocked and a casement inserted; there is a C20 plank door on the right hand side of the outshut. Interior: The partitions in the original part of the house have been removed, and the 2 front rooms of the original house have late C19 soft wood joists. The right hand room has a large fireplace with rough granite jambs and a chamfered timber lintel without stops; in the right hand side of the fireplace there is an original stone-lined oven. The fireplace in the lower left hand room of the original house has been removed. The lower left end addition has a fireplace with a roughly chamfered wooden lintel and C20 ceiling beams. Roof: Over the original house the roof has been largely replaced in the late C20 but the C19 softwood trusses have been retained. The roof over the lower left end addition has circa C18 straight collars pegged to the face of the straight principals. Lower Goongillings was in the manor of Polwheverall. Source: Charles Henderson.
