Courtyard walls and font in courtyard to Medrose Farmhouse and Methrose Farmhouse.

with granite dressings; granite font.

doorway in the east range. The font is inside the courtyard.
The walls are about 2 metres high, in large blocks of granite, partially rebuilt in
the C20 in the east range. The east range has a granite doorway, with 4-centred
arch, hollow-chamfered with roll-mouldings, jambs set on square bases without stops.
Double doors with strap hinges, probably re-used.
The font is octagonal, with brattished top and roughly circular bowl, on shaped stem.
It is said to have been used by John Wesley for baptisms in the C18.
