Polglaze Farm, Restormel, Cornwall. Historic Building Record (OASIS ID: cornwall2-404449)

Cornwall Archaeological unit was commissioned by Nick Ford (ngf Architects) to carry out a historic building record of a farm building at Polglaze Farm, Hewas Water, in advance of its conversion and extension to form a new dwelling. The farm building itself lies immediately west of and within the curtilage of the Grade II Listed farmhouse (List Entry No: 1136272) at NGR: SW 96410 49840. The work was undertaken to satisfy condition 4 of the Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent (Planning Application Nos: PA19/08475 and PA19/08476).

The farm building appears to have been first constructed in the late 19th century (c1880s) following the demolition of a former dwelling and outbuilding on the same site. A total of four major construction phases have been identified as a result of this study. The earliest construction phase (phase 1) dates to the late 19th century (c1880) when building stone from an earlier demolished dwelling and outbuilding on the same spot appears to have been reused to construct a new stable with hayloft over and cart house to the east. During phase 2 (probably c1900) the building was extended eastwards adding what is likely to have been another stable to the east of the cart house. During phase 3 (c1930s or 40s) the building was converted for use as a milking parlour. At this time a small concrete block-built outshut was added for milk collection at the eastern end of the rear elevation and a concrete water tank/trough was added at the west end of the rear elevation. During the mid/late 20th century (probably c1960s or 70s - phase 4) a large concrete block-built outshut extension was added to the rear of the building. It is likely that at this time new concrete floors, troughs and stalls were inserted in the main part of the building.
