The Technical School, Union Place, Truro, Cornwall. Early 1900s Featured Print

The Technical School, Union Place, Truro, Cornwall. Early 1900s

The exterior of the Technical School in Union Place, showing the side/back of the building. Funded by Passmore Edwards and designed by Silvanus Trevail, the school was built in 1899 as a Technical College for men and women. It became a secondary school for boys aged 11-15 in the 1930s. The school was built as an extension to the Passmore Edwards Free Library which had been built in 1896. Both buildings were later used as Truro Community Library. Photographer: Unknown.

Limekiln, Quay Street, Lostwithiel, Cornwall. 1980 Featured Print

Limekiln, Quay Street, Lostwithiel, Cornwall. 1980

A general view of the limekiln. The Grade II listed limekiln is thought to date from the early-mid 19th century. Building work is underway and the store and office to the left are being converted into a house. The kiln in the photograph is termed a draw kiln, usually of stone structure. The chalk or limestone was layered with wood, coal or coke and lit. As it burned through, lime was extracted from the bottom of the kiln, through the draw hole. These are the three arches to the right of the houses being converted. The kilns were loaded at the top and access to load was usually by a ramped track or, as in this case, probably just a track as the kilns are built into the side of rising ground at the rear. Early on, the coal and lime stone would be delivered to the harbour by ship, but as the industrial revolution and and railways spread it is likely that coal and lime stone arrived by rail. Kilns made 25-30 tonnes of lime in a batch. Typically the kiln took a day to load, three days to fire, two days to cool and a day to unload, so a one-week turnaround was normal. Because it is so readily made by heating limestone, lime must have been known from the earliest times and all early civilisations used it in building mortars and as a stabiliser in mud renders and floors. Knowledge of its value in agriculture is also ancient, but agricultural use only became widely possible when the use of coal lowered the cost. Photographer: Charles Woolf.

Stones from Fenton Berran now at Chyverton Manor, Perranzabuloe, Cornwall. Probably early 1900s

Stones from Fenton Berran (Perran Well) now at Chyverton Manor. The well was situated at the bottom of Church Hill, Perranwell, Goonhavern, until road works destroyed the site. The stones were rebuilt in the gardens of Chyverton House during the mid 19th century. The mid 18th century, Grade II listed, country house was built for John Andrews before being extended around 1770 for John Thomas and is referenced as Chiverton in some records. Photographer: Unknown.
