4/49 Forecourt walls, stiles and
Forecourt walls, stiles and mounting block at Godolphin House (qv). C17. Granite
rubble with dressed granite quoins, jambs and copings. 2 parallel walls projecting
forward from the prinicpal front of Godolphin House and forming 2 sides of the
forecourt. At a short distance from the house, each wall is interrupted by a stile
in the form of a stone cattle grid between 2 stone benches (seats re-used in C17).
Their cheeks and backs stop the forecourt walls at a right angle. Outside the
forecourt and built onto its east wall and stile is an early C19 double privy with
symmetrical ashlar front (east) with 2 doorways. It has a hipped scantle slate roof.
Against the outside face of the west forecourt wall and near the stile on this side,
a large mounting block of 6 steps (qv Stables and Cobbled Pavements). The walls have
steep sided copings with roll ridges (qv Pengelly Barton Farmhouse, Breage). Within
the court there is a wide strip of cobbling immediately in front of the house and
another running from it to the west stile - remains of a radiating pattern which also
connected to the lodges.
