Just noticed the Mindat map location for this and other associated areas shows them as being off the south coast of Cornwall.

Can any Devon specialist comment or provide better data?

In such cases, it is very likely that the coordinates were added as OS grid references and prefixed with a wrong area code.
I will have a look at them.

I just had a look and noticed that I did correct all of those myself some time ago. The errors were in fact due to a wrong prefix: "SX" instead of "SS".
