Carclew House, Mylor, Cornwall. 15th March 1912
Main facade of Carclew House from the lawns. Originally owned by the Bonython family, the house and estate were purchased by William Lemon in 1739 who employed the architect Thomas Edwards to enlarge and modernise the house in the style of Palladio's Villa Ragona. The house was further extended by Sir William Lemon in the early 19th century by architect William Wood. It was destroyed by fire in 1934 but one wing was restored in the late 1930s to house refugees. There are a few ruins preserved. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan.
