II* GV Timber-cutting building, stores and office. Built by Camborne School of Mines between 1900 and 1909; restoration in progress at time of survey (1988). Mostly weather-boarded timber frame, but with some brick, raised on a concrete plinth, and with slurried slate roofs on slightly differing levels. L-shaped plan composed of timber cutting range on east-west axis, with office forming south wing at west end. All single storey; the western half of the main range, of 7 bays facing north, has a doorway in the 7th bay and large 6-pane windows in the other bays; at the left end the coped gable of a fire-proof cross wall breaks through the roof, and beyond this is one more bay in matching style; to the east of this a lower continuation of the range, containing the stores, has a similar cross wall breaking through the roof, and the only openings are 2 low-set small square windows beyond this. The office wing, of 3 bays, has 3 windows in the side walls, and the entrance in the south gable by a raised doorway at the right-hand corner, with double-doors approached by a flight of concrete steps. Rear: 4-bay addition in angle, parallel with main range, with a door to the 1st bay and 2-light windows, roof hipped at west end; a doorway to each part of the stores, with 12-pane windows. Interior not inspected. The item forms part of a uniquely complete set of turn-of-the-century tin mining buildings on this site. Reference: A.W.Brooks, op.cit.
