9/146 Shippon and attached wall at
- Trengoffe
Shippon and attached wall; formerly part of the old house at Tergoffe, now
demolished. Probably early C17, with addition to the shippon of mid C18 and few
later alterations. Shippon in slatestone rubble with granite dressings and quoins.
Slate hipped roof with ridge tiles, one re-used hand-made ridge tile. C18 addition
also in slatestone rubble with granite dressings; slate roof with ridge tiles and
gable ends. Wall in slatestone rubble with granite doorway.
Plan: The shippon may be part of a formerly larger building; internally there appears
to be a passage, with a doorway leading to a lower room to the left, but there is no
evidence of a fireplace. The C18 addition is at right angles to the shippon,
projecting to the front left. The wall is attached to the rear left of the C18
addition, and has a doorway which may be re-set, but may also have given access to a
courtyard between the shippon and the original house.
Exterior: The ground level of the shippon slopes down to the left; asymmetrical
range. At the right end there is a door, and granite ventilation slit at ground and
first floor. Off-centre to right double doors, probably a later insertion; to left,
ventilation slit at ground and first floor, and a small single light with hollow-
chamfered granite surround. To left, a 4-centred arched granite doorway, chamfered,
with a loading door above with granite jambs, and inserted door to end left. The
right end is built into the bank, upper ground level wall partially rebuilt, with C20
window set in formerly larger opening with hollow-chamfered granite jambs. The rear
has a 4-centre arched granite doorway, hollow-chamfered with stops, and two C20
windows at ground floor to right, one re-using a granite mullion.
The C18 addition has 3 openings at ground floor, all with flat stone arch with
keystone, central door with window to right and left, all formerly doors. 2 hipped
dormers, one over a loading door and one over a window; 2 rows of square pigeon holes
with slate perches. Corner wall has rounded granite quoins. End wall has 2 rows of
square pigeon holes with slate perches. Rear of the C18 building has C20 window,
with similar flat stone arch with keystone.
The wall attached is about 3 metres high and about 15 metres long. At the outer end,
granite doorway, with 4-centred arch and roll mouldings, moulded jambs and recessed
spandrels with initials GT and hood mould over. On the outer side of the wall, the
doorway has a slatestone relieving arch; some granite ashlar walling surviving at
this end, from the former house.
Interior of the shippon: The granite doorway on the front leads to a passage, with a
masonry wall to left, which has a similar 4-centred arched granite doorway. There
was probably a partition wall to the right of the passage, now removed. C19 roof
