Details

REDRUTH NEW PORTREATH ROAD SW 64 SE (west side) 5/280 Tolgus Tin Streaming Works II Tin streaming works. C19, various builds. Some uncoursed granite, but mostly sheet walls on timber frames, partly rebuilt in concrete blocks, with corrugated sheet roofs. A complex of small interlinked buildings under connected roofs. All single storey but to various heights, some built into or beneath the bank above the stream so that they appear to be below ground level. The exterior features are of less interest than the internal plant: this includes a 12-head set of Cornish stamps powered by an internal waterwheel (and working within the last 4 years); a wooden round-frame (apparently in working order); a ball-mill; and numerous Holman flotation tables. The plant was used for recovery of tin from waste ore. A rare survival of such plant in so complete a form, some of it of a type which antedates steam power (e.g. the water powered stamps).
