8/129 Pellanguy - II

Farmhouse. C17 with an early to mid C19 extension. Granite rubble with squared granite dressings. Grouted scantle slate roof with gabled ends. Gable end stacks to early-mid C19 extension with red brick shafts and gable end stacks to C17 rear wing. The massive stack at the junction of the two ranges is of dressed granite with granite weathering and capping. Plan: The original C17 house survives on the rear (east) service wing of the existing house. The C17 house had a 2-room plan and faced north, its lower west end to the right was the hall/kitchen with a gable end stack and a projecting stair turret at the rear; the smaller left hand room was unheated. There was probably a cross-passage between the two rooms; alternatively there may have been a lower end third room to the right wih a cross or through passage which would have been demolished when in the early to mid C19 the house was reorientated and extended by the addition of a cross-wing at the right (west) end facing west and relegating the original house to a rear service wing. The early to mid C19 extension has a symmetrical 2-room plan with end stacks and a straight flight of stairs between the two rooms rising from an entrance lobbly. The internal plan of the C17 wing was re- arranged when it was reused as the service wing, the original hall/kitchen remaining as the kitchen. The interior was not inspected, therefore the precise internal arrangement cannot be described. In the C20 an outshut was built in the angle of the two ranges. Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-window west front with early to mid C19 16-pane sashes; central doorway with C19 4-panel door and rectangular overlight; all the windows and doorway have dressed granite lintels and the windows have granite cills. The back of this early to mid C19 range has one small C19 16-pane sash on the first floor to right. The north front of the rear wing (original house) has three 2-light 12-pane casements on the first floor and two C20 metal frame casements on the ground floor with a doorway between with a C20 door; a rendered C20 outshut in the angle to the right. The south elevation of the rear wing which is the back of the original house has a rectangular projecting stair turret in the left hand angle with the early to mid C19 extension, one central chamfered granite single-light window frame on the first floor and on the ground floor a central doorway, which may be a later insertion, flanked by two C20 metal frame casements. The east gable end of the rear wing has a window on the ground floor, its chamfered granite lintel is possibly a doorway jamb which has a pyramid stop. There is a small chimney stack covered in ivy on the gable above. Interior: was inaccessible, but the left hand room of the early to mid C19 extension has panelled cupboards on either side of the fireplace, which has a bracketed shelf to its chimney-piece. The rest of the interior was not seen. Henderson states that "In the house is preserved a piece of wood with the initials TMC and date 1660. These stand for Thomas Cocke, yeoman and Mary his wife, who appear as resident at Pellanguy in poll-tax of that year". Pellanguy was a farm of 60 acres and part of the manor of Tucoys, the only manor in Constantine mentioned in the Domesday Book. Source: Charles Henderson, A History of the parish of Constantine in Cornwall, page 156. Pellanguy was formerly in Constantine parish before the parish boundary changed.
