Industrial history and significance
Illogan Highway’s industrial significance is linked primarily to the fortunes of its neighbouring mines and those further afield around Pool and the Tolgus Lodes. It was a simple dormitory settlement along the main road through this principal mining area, contrasting with more varied residential and industrial neighbours like Pool and Tuckingmill, and major centres at Redruth and Camborne.
Illogan Highway’s character is severely affected by its location on a road used by consistently heavy traffic to Pool Industrial Estate.
This settlement forms part of the proposed Cornwall & west Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site Bid, and is considered an important part of the context for the Bid.
