King Edward Mine
Count house and attached smith's shop, now offices. Late C19, altered.
Pebble-dashed render probably on rubble, corrugated sheet roofs.

has a central panelled door protected by an added lean-to porch, 2
windows at ground floor with altered glazing and 2 blocked windows above,
and a hipped roof without chimneys; attached at the left end is a lean-to
store. The smith's shop to the right, which is slightly lower, has a wide
central doorway, 2 windows on each floor with altered glazing, and a
hipped roof with a chimney to the right-hand side wall. Rear and interior
not of special interest. History: originally belonged to South Condurrow
Mine, acquired c.1897 by Camborne School of Mines, re-named King
Edward Mine in 1901, and now part of a uniquely complete set of mine
buildings at this site. Reference: A.W.Brooks "King Edward Mine, West
