Monument Number 425560

Hob Uid: 425560
Location :
Cornwall
Mawgan-in-Meneage
Grid Ref : SW6648023960
Summary : Medieval moated manor house and chapel. The chapel was in ruins by 1561, the other buildings were demolished in 1861, and replaced with the present farm.
More information : (SW66462394) Chapel (NR) (site of). (1)

The buildings of the Medieval mansion at Carminow enclosed a court
40ft square (see plan) (4) and were surrounded by a moat. Due to
their irreparable condition they were demolished in 1861 and a new
homestead and outbuildings erected on the site - the present farmyard
corresponding with the former court. Only the N arm of the moat
remains. The whole farmyard and buildings are strewn with well carved
stonework of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries.(3). 66562395(2) Chapel Yard (a). The chapel was in ruins by 1561; its site was traditionally on the S side of the court. The old burial ground was on elevated ground to the S of the moat. (2-4)

(SW66512397) Carminowe on site of (NAT) Mansion (NR) (5)

None of the Md buildings or arms of the moat survive, although
incorporated in all the present buildings there are pieces of Md
window tracery, door lintels and worked stone.

No information on the chapel; the burial ground was probably in the
elevated field centred SW66502394, although nothing has been found
here.

If, as authority 4 states, the farmyard is on the site of the court
then the mansion was centred at SW66482399 and the chapel site was
at approximately SW66482396 - according to the authority 4 plan.
This is confirmed by the Tithe Map where the plan of the medieval
house can be related to the present buildings. (6)
