Longclose Mine, South Crofty Mine (South Wheal Crofty), Illogan, Camborne - Redruth - St Day District, Cornwall, England, UK
A small old copper mine, started in 1718 and abandoned in 1758. In 1830, the property was included with the East Wheal Crofty sett, from which it was taken over by South Crofty Mine when this was started in 1854. By this time, the Longclose copper lodes were found to be exhausted and the new workings were concentrated on the southern boundary of the sett. This area is now completely built over.
