Full description

The site of the moated manor-house of Penhallam, at Bury Court. Excavation by Beresford in advance of aforestation between 1968 and 1973 revealed the remains of a sophisticated 13th century manor house with associated buildings and a chapel, arranged around a courtyard and surrounded by a moat. It was suggested that the site originated as an early Norman ringwork. Fragmentation of the manorial lands led to desertion of the house by the 14th century. Its successor is a small farmstead, outside the moat, called Bury Court.
The foundations of the manor house and moat are visible on aerial photographs (p1) and were plotted during the Cornwall NMP.
