TIN MINING CHIMNEY.

Old Tin Mine Chimney

This old stone chimney stack is a relic from our tin mining heritage and it’s perched on the crest of a hill in an isolated, overgrown patch of rural Devon countryside. We have been invited to take a look at it and determine what repair work needs to be undertaken. We don’t know much about its history as of yet but records of mining here go back as far as the early 1700’s so we imagine it has been standing for about 300 years. Once a specification has been approved work will hopefully start early next year and we’ll be able to tell you a lot more about it.
