Abstract:
This report presents the results of building recording undertaken by Oakford Archaeology (OA) on a building at Trengothal Farm, St Levan, Cornwall in November 2011 (SX 3777 2486). The western farmhouse is one of a number of ancient farms that make up the hamlet of Trengothal. The core of the main house probably dates to the 17th century, although it has been extensively rebuilt and modified in the 19th century, while the development of the farmbuildings also displays a complex history of enlargement and alterations. The nature of the earliest building, shown on the 1842 tithe map and extending north from the main farmhouse is unclear. The fact that at least one small recess survived within the north wall might suggest that at least part of the building was used to house livestock as they are commonly encountered in feeding passages of cowsheds or stables. By the middle of the 19th century this building was partly demolished and replaced by an extension (on the same footprint) of the main farmhouse. How much of the earlier building survived is unclear. The building break seen in both the south and north elevations seems to indicate that it was some time before the later building was added By the second half of the 19th century a further building had been attached to the north end of the farmhouse extension. It is unclear whether the dates (?) on the roof trusses indicate a date for the construction of the building. While the first floor has always been used for crop storage, there was little left to suggest the function of the ground floor. Following the expansion of cattle husbandry on the farm in the mid-late 19th century and the construction of a barn, stable and cart shed to the south of the farmhouse, the function of the ground floor may have been for the storage of farm implements.
