The whole mining site covers 474ha & is 3km from east to west x 3.5km from north to south & includes the Bedford Mines & part of Wheal Russell Mine to the south. About 45 miles of shafts, levels & winzes were sunk, 33 waterwheels were fed by over 8 miles of leats powering over 4.33 km of flat rods. The Earl of Bradford owns most of the wooded site. Evidence exists for mining from the 18C with most of the industrial archaeology dating from 1844 to 1978 & includes old mine shafts, adits, spoil heaps, quarries, mine building sites, earthworks & transport infrastructure. The site inventory includes over 400 individual sites within the Devon Great Consols Mine complex & constitutes part of Conwall's bid for World Heritage Site status for the Tamar Valley.
