3/72 Narabo Ore Hutches


Ore hutches. Early C19. Slatestone rubble. Range of adjoining rectangular storage
areas with access through wide doorways from the south (river) side. Each area has 4
buttresses or piers to each party wall. All walling originally coped but much of
this has fallen. The hutch to the east has heightened walling dating from when it
was roofed over and used for storage of coal gas. The 5 hutches grouped to the west
are unaltered.
Each hutch in the early days was leased by a separate copper smelting company to hold
their various purchases of ore whilst awaiting shipment. The railway ran above these
level with the top of the walls above ground level on a wooden trestle structure that
ran from the higher ground at the edge of the village.(Excerpt from The Redruth and
Chasewater Railway 1824-1915).
