Full description

Buck, C., 2009, South Hooe Mine, Bere Alston, Devon: Archaeological Assessment, 40-41 (Report - Assessment). SDV344692.

The boiler house chimney for the winding engine house is located on the north-west (rear) wall of the boiler house site, and is probably less than a quarter of its original size. It is approximately 2.4 metres in diameter, and is 3.5 metres high on the east side, 1.8 metres high on the west. It is densely covered with ivy and does not appear very stable. The flue opening is not visible but presumably was on the east side of the chimney base into the boiler house. Other details: Figures 14-15, site 12B. Map object based on this Source.

Following removal of ivy/vegetation and debris from the base of the chimney remnants, the tops of the walls were partially rebuilt, rebedded and the side walls repointed, with stone added where necessary. Other details: Figures 2, 22-24.
