Distant view of Carn Brea, Illogan, Cornwall. 1920s Featured Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape Print

Distant view of Carn Brea, Illogan, Cornwall. 1920s

View from the north side, taken at or near the Illogan Highway. Carn Brea Castle and the Basset Memorial can be seen on the skyline. The castle was built by the Basset family of Tehidy, as a hunting lodge or folly, in the 18th and 19th century but incorporating some fabric which is believed to be medieval. The 90 foot high granite monument was erected in 1836 in memory of Francis Basset of Tehidy. He received his peerage as Baron de Dunstanville in 1780 for marching his miners to Plymouth where they made the marine fortifications safe during the French and Spanish Armada of 1779. Part of the A.K. Hamilton Jenkin collection. Photographer: Unknown
