Wheal Haste Mixed Mine (United Kingdom)

It would appear that Wheal Haste surrendered the Sett to West Wheal Basset in 1946 and inadvertantly starting the longest boundary dispute in Cornish mining history. (That I know of). This is not the place to go into complete detail but the opening page of Peter Finch's book 1872 (an Attorney) will give the flavour. It lasted 12 years.

THE proceedings in the actions of Reynolds v. Buckley and Others, or Lyle v Richards and Others, or in the suit in Chancery of Thomas v. Richards and Others, have not been reported, with the exception of the Appeal to the House of Lords in Lyle v. Richards and Others; yet the question involved was far from being one of no general importance, and the Report of the Appeal to the House of Lords would be much better understood after reading a report of the pro¬ceedings in the actions.
The case went before two special juries, went twice before the Court of Queen's Bench on leave reserved at each of the trials, went twice before the Court of Error, consisting of judges of the Court of Common Pleas and Barons of the Court of Exchequer, was then taken by .Appeal to the House of Lords, then went before the Vice-Chancellor James in a suit against the representatives of the grantor of the mining setts under which the litigation arose, then went before a Queen's Counsel as Arbitrator, and ultimately went again before the Court of Queen's Bench on an application to refer back to the Arbitrator his Award, on the ground that he had misinterpreted the Judgment of the House of Lords, when the Court of Queen's Bench declined to enforce the Award by any summary interference but left the parties to bring an action upon it.
The proceedings occupied above twelve years, having been commenced in December, 1857, and the last Judgment of the Court of Queen's Bench having been pronounced in the month of June, 1870; and it can scarcely be said that the Judgments of all these Courts are of no value or not worth reporting.
Almost like Alice-in-Wonderland.
