Details

ZENNOR SW 43 NW 3/228 Bosigran Smelting Works - GV II Tin smelting house and associated structures including detached chimney. C18 and C19. Granite rubble with some granite dressings. Rectangular plan main building which is divided into 2 nearly square rooms. The smelting room with remains of a brick furnace is at the higher end (west) and this is linked to a detached round chimney (farther west) by a horizontal flue. The leat runs under the flue and formerly powered a wheel for driving a bellows. The lower end is older and may have originally contained a furnace but was later used presumably to house a bellows. Nearby are other remains including buddle pits. One of the most complete remains of C19 and earlier smelting works in Cornwall.
