Trenethick Barton Farmhouse
Gatehouse or barbican and adjoining courtyard walls. C16. Built for the
Hill family. Granite elvan and killas rubble walls. Granite ashlar
gatehouse with granite dressings. Grouted scantle slate roof with gable
ends. Stepped copings to walls.
Plan: Small rectangular-on-plan gatehouse flanked by high walls, with
wide gateway to the ground floor and small guardroom above with its
doorway into the right-hand gable end approached by a steep flight of
granite steps built against the inside of the courtyard wall.
Exterior: 2 storey gatehouse. Ground floor has wide 4-centred arched
doorway with hoodmould. Old doors, probably C18 or early C19. Over the
doorway the granite ashlar front is jettied out on a dressed granite
corbel table. There is a central complete 3-light mullioned window with hoodmould. Under the window is the Hill coat of arms. The walls are
very high on either side of the gatehouse and ramp down at either side.
This gatehouse overlooked the former main highway (now disused) and is
one of the most interesting C16 domestic buildings in Cornwall.
Interior not inspected.
