Wheal Gons

From Graces Guide

Investing in mines was not the only source of profit to the adventurers. Some were also were mineral lords who did exceedingly well. For example Lord and Lady de Dunstanville, whilst securing a profit of £6,696.42 over the seven years on their holdings in Cook's Kitchen and Wheal Gons & Stray Park, also received a further £9,625 in dues. It is therefore no surprise that: ‘The late Lord de Dunstanville made money, as a landlord, faster from this (i.e. Cook's Kitchen) and the Old Pool Mine than he expended it in building Tehidy House, one of the finest seats in Cornwall’
