Full description

Newman, P., 2002, Haytor Down, Ilsington, Devon, 17-18, Figures 7 & 8 (Report - Survey). SDV346395.

Probable winding house at Bagtor Mine; remains surveyed in 1999 of a small, stone structure, at the north-western end of a tramway that transported ore to the dressing floors. The tramway extends to the workings in the Sig valley and beyond to the Hemsworthy part of the sett. Its course is clear on air photographs. The stony trackbed in Crownley Parks is well-preserved, beginning as a steep, revetted incline beside the Blacksmith's Shop and running north-east to a small stone structure which appears to be a winding house for the incline. The tramway then levels out and runs south-west across the streamwork, leaving the survey area and heading towards Bagtor Mine Cottages in the next valley.
