Delves Kitchen
A relatively obscure copper working, this was formerly worked for tin in Heath Wood and Little Heath Wood, the mine's name is first mentioned in Elizabeth Cake's tinworks list of 1778, which originated in the mid-late 17th century, before the first copper boom. It's not known what the Tavistock Canal company did with this lode, which was operated as part of Bedford United Mine from the mid-19th century, but it appeared on their lists in the 1810-28 period.
