HELSTON

SW62NW BREAGE ROAD 631-1/1/3 Forecourt and rear yard walls, steps 25/05/72 & mounting block SE of Methleigh Farmhouse (Formerly Listed as: BREAGE ROAD Garden wall and mounting steps S of Methleigh Farmhouse)

GV II

Forecourt and rear courtyard walls, steps and mounting block. C18 and mid C19. Rubble with granite dressings including C18 steps with moulded edge and similar top step of mounting block; square edged copings to front wall and wall at right-angles to rear of rear courtyard, water trough at rear of rear courtyard and scantle slate coping to tall wall on left of forecourt. Rectangular forecourt; irregular rear cobbled courtyard with round central pond. Central gateway to forecourt approached by 4 semicircular-on-plan steps and 1 straight step; 5-step mounting block on the right. Tall right-hand wall of rear courtyard has many nesting boxes. The water trough was originally filled by the complex labyrinth of underground channels at Methleigh which are connected to the mill leat. There is another watering place in the retaining wall in front of the wing of the house. The water supply system at Methleigh, serving mill, farm buildings, house and gardens is a considerable feat of planning and engineering and is probably the most complex of its kind in Cornwall.
