Approximately 4.5 hectares of tin streamworking remains survive on the right bank of the North Teign River between its confluence with the Stonetor Brook and the Walla Brook. The workings are characterised by long linear spoil heaps separated by wide channels. The area is now enclosed by marsh and the channels are silted making access difficult. The left bank of the North Teign River was not investigated (citing Probert, S. A. J., 15/8/1991, Royal Commission on the Historic Monuments in England Field Investigation).
