The lily pond with rowing boat at Carclew House, Mylor, Cornwall. 15th March 1912
Originally owned by the Bonython family, the house and estate were purchased by William Lemon (1696-1760) in 1749 who employed the architect Thomas Edwards to enlarge and modernise the house in the style of Palladios Villa Ragona. The house was further extended by Sir William Lemon (1748-1824) 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. Extensive gardens and park surrounded the house. The gardens were famous for rhododendrons and a rhododendron arboretum was planted by Sir Charles Lemon (1784-1868) in 1850. The lily pond and gardens were preserved after the destruction of the house by fire in 1934. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
