Full description

Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

Depicted on the late 19th century historic map to the north of the incline.

Houghton, P., 2015, An Archaeological and Historical Report on New Quay Nr Tavistock Devon Volume One, 52-, fig 8, 60 (Report - Assessment). SDV363202.

The wheel pit header pond is shown on the Bedford Estate map of 1867 as a long narrow feature, although the late 19th century historic map depicts a more rounded feature just above the wheel pit. Much of this area is too overgrown with vegetation for a true evaluation of this feature. Probable location indicated on Houghton's plan of site feature.
