PICKED STONES IRON MINE

DESCRIPTION + /

In 1857 the Plymouth Iron Company was granted a lease to land for the working of iron. The main workings were circa 410m north east of Cow Castle. A shaft of some 19.7m deep was sunk and a level was driven eastwards, a second adit was driven eastwards from the bank of White Water. The remains are visible as a trench measuring 3.6m deep and 80m long and two adits. There is a mass of disturbed spoil on its northern side. The trench has been used for dumping, its eastern end has been partly filled with old machinery.
