PASSMORE, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV315068.

This mill probably preceded the large stamps wheel on the w side of the valley which was constructed c.1903 sx68se/296. There is evidence of the wheel pit + another structure which may have been a second wheelpit or the site of an earlier mill (passmore).

Greeves, T. A. P., Untitled Source (Worksheet). SDV69961.

Field evidence includes a triple mortarstone now at heatherstone widecombe (sx72097940, sx77nw/131), but brought from golden dagger mine c.1940 (greeves).
