Abstract:
Between October 2011 and June 2012, HE Projects provided input to a project design for the conservation of South Crofty's New Cook's Shaft headframe together with a pair of 19th century engine houses at Cook's Kitchen. HE Projects subsequently undertook a historic building consultancy at both sites during the conservation works programme carried out between February and November 2013. New Cooks was the principal hoisting shaft at South Crofty. Its distinctive back to back double headframe has long been a distinctive landmark within the mining landscape around Pool. The site's occupiers - Western United Mines - proposed relocating any future milling operations to the southern part of the site - derelict structures around New Cooks Shaft would be levelled and the site redeveloped. Such is the iconic importance of this double headframe, however, that it was leased by Cornwall Council, together with a separate area containing the two Cook's Kitchen engine houses. The headframe was fully scaffolded, cleaned of grease, grit blasted, defective steelwork replaced where required and painted with a four part paint system. The engine houses and chimney were fully repointed using a lime based mortar mix, wall tops were re-laid and failed timber lintels replaced in new oak. On the pumping engine house, significant areas of collapsed stonework wall facings were rebuilt and, on its southern elevation, the gable was taken down and rebuilt and the doorway and middle floor window reveals were reconstructed.
