A decorative stack and some ruinous buildings identify Lockridge Mine in a copse beside the railway, just west of Bere Alston on the road to Lockridge Farm. Decorations include a stonework rib halfway between the brickwork and ground level, three rows of decorative bricks in the stonework below the corbelling, and three arched panels inset into the brickwork, in a similar fashion to the four panels inset into the separate stack at Druid Mine.
