WARBSTOW SX 19 SE 2/230 Fentrigan Farmhouse (formerly listed as Fentrigan House) 1.12.51 II

Farmhouse. Probably C17 origins remodelled in the C19 and C20. Stone rubble. Rag slate roof with gable ends. Stone rubble axial stack to left of centre and end stack to right. Plan: Original plan uncertain. The house was probably much larger and has been reduced to a 2-room and cross or through passage plan, heated by end stacks. Further extended in circa later C19 with 1-room plan range on left, heated by fireplace served by the originally end stack on left. The house appears to have been truncated on the right hand end with circa C19 outbuildings now adjoining on right. There is a service outshut across the rear which has been partly rebuilt in the C20. The owner remembers further buildings to the front of the house, forming a courtyard. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:3 window front with dressed unmoulded granite lintels to ground floor openings and brick segmental arches to first floor. Earlier range on right has an almost symmetrical front with a C20 door flanked by a C20 P.V.C. window to left and C20 2-light casement to right. Three 4-pane sashes on first floor. Extension to left has a C20 door on the ground floor and C20 P.V.C. window above. Interior: Only left hand room inspected. The owner states that the ceiling beams and roof timbers have been replaced and the fireplaces covered over. The manor of Fentrigan appertained to Tywardreath priory prior to 1540 when it was annexed to the Duchy. It has remained in the hands of the Grigg family from the C17. The hearth tax returns for 1664 record that John Grigg had five hearths, one fallen down and one "stopt up". Polsue, J. Lake's Parochial History of the County of Cornwall reprinted 1972. Stoate, T.L.
