Property description


Grade II Listed Cornish Engine House set in approximately 20 acres of land, located in the West Godolphin Mine Set with wide ranging views out over the surrounding countryside.


The Property
Wheal Junket Engine House is constructed of the typical granite rubble walls, dressed stone quoins and jambstones, with most of the openings spanned by round brick arches and brick upper to the chimney. The engine house is laid out over three storeys, including a basement.

The land is currently in an overgrown state and is a mixture of bracken, gorse, hawthorn, small trees etc. Within the land there are various mine shafts. We are not aware if these are capped, so the land will need evaluating carefully.

This attractive engine house, set in 20 acres of amenity land, offers a rare and exciting opportunity, subject to planning, for possible conversion.

Viewings: Strictly by appointment with the selling agents Lodge & Thomas. Interested parties must NOT view the property without authorisation, as there are safety concerns due to the number of open mine shafts on site and loose masonry on the engine house. It is not advisable for children to attend. Dogs permitted strictly on a lead.

Services: There are no services to the site, however there are services nearby in Rocky Lane and the Council road. Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries and investigations prior to making an offer.

Particulars & Plan: Whilst every care is taken in the preparation of these particulars, their accuracy is not guaranteed and they do not constitute any part of an offer or contract. Any intending purchaser/s must satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise as to the correctness of these particulars.

Note: The land is within the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site. There are no public rights of way on the land, or any other designations.

Located at Trescowe Common, between Godolphin Bridge and the hamlet of Trescowe. The land is accessed from a Class C Council maintained lane and is located approximately 1 mile from Townshend, 2 miles from the village of Godolphin, 5 miles from Hayle, 3 miles from Goldsithney, 9 miles to Penzance and 3 miles to Rosudgeon, with a range of local amenities
