Start: 13:00 o’clockEnd: 16:30 o’clock
Calendar: GeneralLocation: Coombe, Buckfastleigh

A chance to visit this small mine situated in the Dean Combe Valley. Despite it being an unsuccessful and poorly documented mine, there are reasonable remains, including a wheelhouse, small dressing floor and long incline (nearly half a mile in length).

In addition to the mine, I hope to visit potential mining earthworks at Forder Farm (at the request of the farmer who doesn't know what they are).

The terrain is very steep.

Meet at Cross Furzes - Grid Ref SX 699668

Duchy of Cornwall WWI Tin and Wolfram Mine, Kit Hill The Duchy opened this mine in January 1916 as part of their war effort; Dines suggests that it closed in 1921. While there was later exploration on the hill, the Duchy mine was the last working to go into production. We will be looking at the archaeological evidence on the eastern slopes of Kit Hill, within the Country Park, and, with the permission of the landowner, some features outside the Park.

Start: Adit car park, Kit Hill (GR 380 714 second on left)
Allow 3-4 hours. Bring a packed lunch, and suitable clothing and footwear.
