3/60 Pound at approximately 200 metres
west of Godolphin House


Pound, incoporating an earlier structure, possibly a gun powder store. Indeterminate
date possibly C17 in origin but converted to pound circa C18 or early C19. Cyclopean
un-dressed granite rubble with some dressed granite as jambstone to storage chambers,
lintels and 1 gate post.
Rectangular pound with gate to east, its south and east walls extending the external
pound was made. The ruin is puzzling; remains of 2 or more small slab-roofed cells
can be seen surrounded by a mass of earth-bound masonry. The most complete cell is
entered from the east face.
Sir Francis Godolphin was at the forefront of mining technology in the late C16-early
C17. The small separate cells and surrounding bulk suggest a use such as the storage
of black powder.
