The last post of the series brought back the maps from my original website that showed the processes and structures within the South Caradon Mine dressing floor. This post follows on from those maps with a reproduction of an Ordnance Survey 1885 map of the area, a map that I have magnified as much as the image quality allows.
A map of the Seaton Valley in 1883
This map was published in the year of the mine’s closure, it therefore shows the dressing floors in their final layout.
Key features shown
- Donkey Pond- 2334
- The yard-2335
- The large shed- The coffin shape structure to the west of the yard
- The count house- Structure north of 2336
- The stamps and crusher- Structure south of 2336
- The Halvan floors-The various circles and rectangles in the southern part of the map
