Abstract:
In May 2011, Historic Environment Projects, Cornwall Council were commissioned by Noel O'Donnell of Arcadis to undertake an archaeological assessment of the Western Power Distribution depot at Pool, Redruth in support of a detailed application for planning permission to redevelop the site. This area at Pool, formerly the site of part of Trevenson Mine: one of the three most important early 18th century copper mines in Cornwall, was later re-worked as part of East Wheal Crofty and later as part of North Wheal Crofty and eventually South Crofty. The northern part of the site was, during the 18th and 19th centuries, open land associated with the nearby Trevenson House. Following the closure of North Wheal Crofty in the closing decades of the 19th century, the land remained derelict until after World War 2, when it was redeveloped as a storage yard, workshops and offices for the South West Electricity Board, and is still occupied by its successor: Western Power Distribution. Although no surface remains of these very important early copper mines remain on site, there remains the potential for the survival of associated sub-surface archaeological evidence for their activities, in particular in areas adjacent to the known route of the Pool Adit across the site. This assessment considers the historical development of the site, its significance and the likely impacts of its proposed redevelopment, setting out suggested mitigation measures to minimise these impacts.
