Full description

Richardson, P. H. G., 1992, The Mines of Dartmoor and the Tamar Valley after 1913, 70 (Article in Serial). SDV323598.

North Combe Shining Ore mine (SX804807?). The only evidence for this mine appears to be the Official Mines List for 1895. The ownership and name of the chief agent were the same as those for Plumley Mine whose recorded statistics began in 1896. It seems likely, therefore, that North Combe and Plumley were alternative names for the same mine.
