It is unclear if these post-medieval or modern quarries are associated with either of the two mines recorded in close proximity here, Devon Mine (MDV3823) to the east and Wheal Conquer (MDV51002) to the west. Only part of the photo reference is given in the transcription attributes, so the date of the photograph is not known.
