Monument Number 872226

Hob Uid: 872226
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Trentishoe
Grid Ref : SS6305346602
Summary : The remains of a possible shaft is visible on aerial photographs as a circular depression measuring 5.6m in diameter and 0.4m deep to the north of Tattiscombe. A nearby mound to the east may represent the remains of a spoil heap. An adit at Tattiscombe may be related to this mining activity (see NMR UID 859428).
More information : At SS 63044659 is a circular depression 5.6m in diameter and 0.4m deep which may be the infilled remains of a shaft. At SS 63064659 is an irregular mound 1.8m high (maximum) which represents a spoil heap. It is the strongest argument for the depression being interpreted as a shaft. Surveyed at 1:2500 scale. (1)

Both the circular depression and associated spoil heap are visible on aerial photographs to the north of Tattiscombe. An adit located to the south at Tattiscombe could be part of this mining activity. The shaft, spoil heap and adit are not depicted on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map (3-4)
