HAYLE FOUNDRY HILL, Hayle
12/173 No 5 (former Foundry School)
School for foundry workers children. Circa 1860. Built for Harvey and Co.
Granite and killas rubble with granite dressings, slatehanging to walls of rear
wing. Hipped slurried scantle slate roof with wide eaves and ventilator holes
drilled into the soffits. Cast-iron ogee-secton gutters.
Plan: Overall L-shaped plan. Originally probably a large rectangular schoolroom
on each floor of the main part and possibly schoolteachers' accommodation in a
one-room plan wing at right angles behind the right-hand side. Now used as a
house and subdivided.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Tall virtually symmetrical 3 window west road front with no
doorway. Original 30-pane hornless sashes to ground floor except that right-hand
window has shutter in place of lower sash. Originally 12-pane sashes above but
the lower sashes are replaced with 2 panes. Doorway to middle of left-hand wall
at basement level. Originally double 3-panel doors and 5-pane overlight. Another
doorway at higher level on left is probably in position of former stair window.
Interior: Not inspected.
