Basset Estate documents

In the autumn we dipped into our New Purchases Fund to buy as one lot, two separate sets of auction particulars relating to the Basset’s Tehidy Estate. Only one set was Parish-related, giving details of land for sale in Porthtowan, on Mulgram Hill and at Chapel Porth, so we were delighted when, thanks to the efforts of one of our members, the other set was sold and the Museum was able to show a profit on the overall transaction.
