3/27 Engine house at SW584316, Wheal
Junket, West Godolphin Mine


Disused beam engine house. Circa late 1860s. Granite rubble walls with dressed
granite quoins and jambstones, granite ashlar bob wall. Most openings spanned by
round brick arches, some timber lintels. Brick upper stage to chimney.
Rectangular single cell plan with thicker bob wall (north east) and round chimney
clasping the west corner. Floors and machinery removed. 3 storeys over basement.
North-east bob wall has large central round-headed ground floor opening.
Weatherboarded 2 floor and gable end removed. Similar ground floor opening to
opposite south-west gable end wall with smaller round-headed opening to each floor
over. Irregularly disposed mostly round-headed openings to each side wall. The
north west wall shows evidence of a former adjoining building probably the boiler
house. The tapered rubble chimney rises to a moulded brick collar surmounted by a
tapered banded brick shaft with a brick cornice.
Worked until circa 1890. In earlier times it was known as North Great Work.
An engine house in unusually good structural condition and prominently situated.
