2:00pm - 5:00pm West Vitifer and Bushdown Mine WalkVenue: Bennett's Cross carpark at SX 681 817 on the B3212
We will explore the tin working remains of Bushdown Mine and West Vitifer Mine, the latter a mid- 19th Century working, in a pleasant stroll down what is now called the North Walla Brook. The Vitifer mine, although small and having no great history, is in an attractive location and has all the features one would expect of a mine of this vintage. We will see what is possibly Dartmoor's most picturesque tree! The going is fairly easy, a bit wet in places and across heather moor, using paths where possible. No need to contact leader before coming unless the weather looks particularly bad.
