10/105 Carnsew Quay
Quay walls. Circa 1740, extended early C19. Granite and elvan rubble with
granite dressings, some granite ashlar ; iron cramps to copings.
Plan: Causeway quay which forms a barrier damming water behind it between
tides so that it could be released through sluices to remove silt from the estuary channels. One sluice between the neck of the quay Carnsew Dock and
South Quay q.v. is now blocked ; the other sluice is fed by a 2-span bridge opening and the water flows under a projecting sluice quay through 4
openings. Quay walls opposite South Quay are scalloped on plan and have 2
loading bays. The walls are battered and on the estuary side have dressed
granite copings. The walls surrounding the exit sluices are granite ashlar
and the openings are spanned by granite lintels. The inner walls of the quay
are random rubble. The entrance to the sluices is 2 spans of round arches
with rubble voussoirs.
On December the 27th 1834 there was a ceremonial opening of the sluices when
the mines adventurers and other customers and friends of the Company were
invited to a breakfast at the White Hart Hotel.
