Track from Hawkmoor House at SX43277347 leading to the railway at SX42147345 running from Wheal Anna Maria to Agnes Shaft which was shown on the 1857 Devon Great Consols lease map. The track may have been a short tramway branch to the house as Hawkmoor was the Count House for Wheal Josiah mine. The survey in 2002 found the track 2.5m wide approaching the house at a constant gradient. Other details: Site 269.
