The Perran Iron Foundry in Perranarworthal near Truro was one of the cradles of the industrial revolution. The Foundry was founded in 1791; a complex of casting, forging and pattern making shops, leats driving water mills, store buildings and offices, employing up to 400 men. Since it finally closed in 1871 the site had decayed into a romantic ruin and, thanks to a large investment in 2011, has now be sensitively revived to provide contemporary cottages, live work units and loft apartments of the highest specification.
Changing Brands have created the brand, marketing materials and website that have inspired purchasers to buy into a piece of Cornwall’s industrial history, providing a backdrop to a contemporary Cornish lifestyle.
The website www.perranfoundry.com managed to inspire 10 property reservations during the first week of it’s launch.
