    Perran Foundry at Perranarworthal, Penrhyn, was started in 1791 by the Fox family of Falmouth. The original lease from the Bassets is still in existence, and the foundry has been dealt with by Mr. Tregonning Hooper in his paper to the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society (Proceedings R.C.P.S. Part III, 1939). Perran Foundry was owned and controlled by the Foxes until 1858 and it ceased production in 1879 after being sold to the Williams family of Gwenap and Scorrier.
    Today it is a decaying grade II listed building. Carrick district council agreed to release cash to carry out essential repairs to the derelict Perran Foundry
