Copperhouse Copper Smelter (United Kingdom)


Built in 1750’s to smelt in Cornwall rather than Swansea. Used ores from Camborne and Gwennap Mines. Only remains are walls of ‘canal’ dock wharf, made of blocks of slag (‘scoriae’) & parts of the lock gate. Large quantities of coal needed and powerful Welsh Smelters caused the demise of the works in the 19th century.
