6/82 Outbuildings and adjoining walls at approx 30 metres north-west of Pengersick Castle GV II*

Part of Pengersick Castle, converted to farm building with first floor granary and adjoining wall to right. C16 with some later modifications and granary added mid- late C19. Granite rubble with granite dressings and quoins, Delabole slate roof with gable ends. The basis of the plan is a small stoutly-built approximately square 3-storey block or tower facing south. It is the only other substantial remainder of Pengersick Castle (qv) and is probably co-eval (early C16). Its outer west and north walls formed the far north-west corner of the castle's west (domestic) courtyard extending south and east as curtains, linking this block or tower with the other buildings of the courtyard. The wall which abutted to the south seems to have contained a gate, while that running east to the hall still survives with lean-tos against it. This little building is almost complete to ceiling height and its features support its use as the porter's or gate-keeper's lodging. In the south-west corner remains of the drum of a newel stair giving access to the floors above and to a parapet walk over the gate; next to this a pistol loop and next again the doorway; a small fireplace in the back wall. The first floor was altered in the later C19 but includes a small window to the south and a pistol loop to the east. It is reached by C19 stone steps and door on the west face. The second floor is now entirely C19 and extends the building north over the bank as a granary with access in the back wall and a small casement- moulded single light window to the east (probably re-used). South front: 3 storeys, gable ended with irregular fenestration; ground floor door far right with 3 centred head but jambs rebuilt wider and quoined; left of this a pistol loop and left again a small single light casement-moulded window to stair position (possibly re-used). First floor centre a similar single light window and above right a C19 loading door; in the gable pigeon holes 4, 3 and 2 with re-used piece of mid-C15 window tracery in apex. The high wall adjoining right now serves as a retaining wall for part of its height. It was partly rebuilt in C17 or C18 and reputedly formed the south side of a pound at one time. Against south face a late lean-to store and on far right returning south a C19 shippon on the site of the mediaevel hall. Interior : has late C19 carpentry, original stair drum and ground floor fireplace with chamfered lintel. This group of buildings, though altered in the C19, are an important remnant of Pengersick Castle deserving further research.
