Lanhydrock, near Bodmin, is a magnificent country house of the late 17th century which was severely damaged by fire in 1881. Repairs and remodelling were undertaken for Lord Robartes by Richard Coad, a renowned Cornish Architect.


The brief included the requirement that the house must never catch fire again. One of the principal measure undertaken to protect the fabric was the introduction of patent fireplace consitriuction designed and patented by Dennett and Ingles.


The house is listed – Grade 1; it is surrounded by gardens and a wooded estate. MRDA act as architects concerned with the extensive buildings and the landscape. Current interest is focussed on protection of the Oak and Teak stairs.
