GV II Pattern shop, now derelict. Circa late C18/early C19. Lime-washed shale rubble walls and some brick with slate sills and timber lintels. Grouted scantle slate roof with gable ends (some roofing fallen).

South side has slightly irregularly disposed range of openings, with nine openings to each floor. First floor loading doorway with pair of ledged doors is approached by earth ramp. Windows with vertical glazing bars mostly survive but there are many broken panes. North side has similar range of openings and windows.

Interior not inspected but said to be unaltered since the C19.

Part of the Perran Iron Foundry, founded in 1791, and in its heyday the most important foundry in Cornwall, manufacturing some of the largest beam engines ever constructed.

Plan of Perran Foundry, circa 1860 (CRO).

Much original fabric and features surviving but derelict at the time of the survey (1985).
