Greatwork, West Coast
A former mining community near Godolphin Cross village.
Midway between the towns of Hayle and Helston, Godolphin Cross is on an upland area, part of a geological formation known as the Tregonning-Godolphin Granite. The term refers to the plateau of high ground in this area, one of five granite batholiths in Cornwall.
The Godolphin Estate, on the outskirts of Godophin Cross, is now wholly owned by the National Trust. The estate and surrounding woodlands are once again open to the public, who were prevented from visiting most of the Estate by the former owners.
