Lopwell Mine, Blindwell Wood, Bere Ferrers (Beer Ferris), Tavistock District, Devon, England, UK

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
 
 
A small lead and silver mine on the western bank of the river Tavy, northwest of Maristow House. The workings included an adit and two shafts that were apparently sunk on two parallel lodes, about 30 fms apart.

Very little is known about the history of this mine. Hamilton Jenkin (1974) assumes that it formed part of the sett of Maristow Mine. Newman (2011) points out that it may well have been an independent sett and possibly worked later together with Maristow Mine or Wood Mine, but there are no records to confirm either view. There also are no records of output.


Note:
The grid reference is from Newman (2011). For a discussion on the location of this mine, see the "Blindwell Wood" entry.
