8/5 Timber-cutting building and
office approx.20 metres south
of Count House at
King Edward Mine

Timber-cutting building, stores and office. Built by Camborne School of
Mines between 1900 and 1909; restoration in progress at time of survey
(1988). Mostly weather-boarded timber frame, but with some brick, raised
on a concrete plinth, and with slurried slate roofs on slightly differing
levels. L-shaped plan composed of timber cutting range on east-west axis,
with office forming south wing at west end. All single storey; the western
half of the main range, of 7 bays facing north, has a doorway in the 7th
bay and large 6-pane windows in the other bays; at the left end the coped
gable of a fire-proof cross wall breaks through the roof, and beyond this is
one more bay in matching style; to the east of this a lower continuation
of the range, containing the stores, has a similar cross wall breaking
through the roof, and the only openings are 2 low-set small square
windows beyond this. The office wing, of 3 bays, has 3 windows in the side
walls, and the entrance in the south gable by a raised doorway at the
right-hand corner, with double-doors approached by a flight of concrete
steps. Rear: 4-bay addition in angle, parallel with main range, with a door
to the 1st bay and 2-light windows, roof hipped at west end; a doorway to
each part of the stores, with 12-pane windows. Interior not inspected. The
item forms part of a uniquely complete set of turn-of-the-century tin
mining buildings on this site. Reference: A.W.Brooks, op.cit.
