Stormsdown Adit

Steve Grigg (2023) writes: “Stormsdown Mine is located a few miles to the north east of Ashburton on private land in the Owlacombe Valley. The Dartmoor Tin Mining Research Group (DTRG) held an ‘Ashburton Parish’ event in late April 2023 which included a visit to the mine. The author was fortunate enough to attend these events and is grateful to Stephen Holley (DTRG Chairman), who led a walk to the mine and who provided a fabulous insight into its history and its operation. As well as DTRG information provided on the walk and from their website, further information on the mine used in this post was gleaned from the Hamilton Jenkin, Mines of Devon publication.

Should you wish to visit, please obtain the permission of the landowner.
