Abstract:
Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is applying for Heritage Lottery Funding to improve its visitor experience and archive and learning facilities. Stage 1 approval has been received and a detailed funding bid is now being prepared. As part of that process, a Planning and Listed Building Consent application is being submitted for alterations to the main museum building - the Edwardian, Grade 2 listed Eastern House - and the rebuilding of a redundant Maintenance Block. Planning Policy Statement 5 requires that the application's Design and Access Statement include a description of the significance of the heritage assets, the contribution of their setting to that significance and the extent to which the proposal impacts on those assets. In the light of this requirement, Historic Environment Consultant, Jeanette Ratcliffe, and Historic Building Consultant, Eric Berry, were commissioned to carry out a Historic Building Appraisal during July 2011. The Historic Building Appraisal carried out for the proposed development scheme at Porthcurno Telegraph Museum has identified the core of the site - Eastern House and the Tunnels (both Listed Buildings) - as being of international significance, and the site's setting as making an important contribution to the significance of the heritage assets. The overall architectural integrity of Eastern House survives and the Tunnels have retained their military appearance. Although it is located near to the site of an earlier structure, the Maintenance Block is of much more recent date and does not have any intrinsic architectural value.
