Ladock iron mine, Ladock, St Austell District, Cornwall, England, UK
An iron mine in the area southeast of Great Hewas farm, which was worked intermittently from 1835 until 1875. The sett comprised two NW-trending lodes, consisting of brecciated quartz cemented by limonite, which were exploited from shallow shafts and opencast workings. The shafts have been filled in and are now largely obscured, but traces of the excavations can still be identified at surface. The grid reference marks one of the small burrows that are remaining of those gunnises.
UK Grid Reference: SW915525
During the periods 1860-1862 and 1872-1875, the mine produced 7,600 tons of iron ore.
