Summary : An adit is reported here but the site is covered by a large bush and other vegetation. It is alleged to have drained into a stream.
More information : "..the discovery of his (William Stenner's) body in an abandoned mine tunnel, in the side of the valley west of the ruined farm of Muddicombe" (source 1)

The adit, alluded to by source 1, was confirmed by the owner of Muddicombe (source 2) who described it as being covered by a rhodedendron bush and being silted up and barely visible.
