Everett, C., 1988, Haytor Down, Plan (Worksheet). SDV304118.

Site visited in February 1988. Suggested forge at Holwell Quarry. Built into hillside on south side of granite tramway. Entrance on north side. The surviving wall suggests a building of 'lean-to' type, the front wall being lower than the back. A platform in the middle of the rear wall, with flue-like channels beneath, suggests a forge.

Small building shown on map.


Newman, P., 2002, Haytor Down, Ilsington, Devon, 27, Figure 12 (Report - Survey). SDV346395.

One of five buildings at Holwell Quarry. The large rectangular structure to the east of the site adjacent to the tramway is likely to be that depicted on a print of 1829 with a sloping thatched roof and could perhaps be an office.
