REDRUTH NORTH DOWNS
SW 74 SW
6/283 Chimney stack at SW 713 442
II
Isolated chimney stack on site of former Great North Downs Mine. Probably
early C19 or earlier. Large blocks of granite rubble brought to courses, and
brick. Circular plan. Three short stages successively set back, the top-most of
brick with brick cornices at each end. History: North Downs was worked for
copper from the beginning of the C18, and was then the largest copper venture
in Cornwall (reference D.B.Barton A Guide to the Mines of West Cornwall, 3rd
edn. 1973, p.33). A small but sturdy structure whose strong visual quality is
much enhanced by its now smoothly-grassed and otherwise featureless
surroundings.
