Monument Number 917543

Hob Uid: 917543
Location :
Devon
North Devon
North Molton
Grid Ref : SS7339532776
Summary : The position of a disused post medieval mine shaft is indicated by spoil mounds and earthworks. Given its proximity to Bampfylde Mine (see NMR UID 35097) it is possibly related to the workings here.
More information : A disused shaft-head at SS 7338 3278 is indicated by spoil mounds 1.3m high adjacent to a field boudary. The precise position of the shaft is marked by a slight hollow 0.4m deep and 1.3m in diameter. (1)

The spoil heap is clearly visible on aerial photographs as described above, and a slight hollow, possibly the remains of a shaft can also be seen on the western side of the mound. It is depicted but not annotated on the first edition Ordnance Survey map, suggesting it was not in use when the map was published in 1890. The feature lies approximately 200 metres south-east of shafts associated with Bampfylde Mine, as may be associated with activity here (2-4).
