SX77SW DRUID 849-1/1/232 Engine House and chimney at Druid 10/05/73 Copper Mine (Formerly Listed as: DRUID Druid's Mine, Chimney and Engine house)

II

Ruined engine house and chimney. Probably mid C19. Stone rubble; chimney has a red-brick top. Engine-house roof removed. Engine-house consists of a single chamber, roughly square in plan. About 8.5m to E is the circular chimney. The mineshaft lies immediately W of the engine-house and to the N of this is a series of below-ground chambers. The engine-house is a tall building, probably 2-storeyed and with an underground chamber originally. Most of the walls survive, although some masonry has collapsed at the top. The E side has a tall round-arched doorway and there are similar, smaller openings on the S and W sides. The S side seems to have been decorated with pilaster-strips. On the N side is a tall narrow opening, presumably for a piece of machinery. The chimney is almost complete. At the top of the stone shaft is a cornice composed of projecting brick courses, and above that a short brick shaft with round-arched panels on its sides. The owner says the mine ceased working in 1888. (Harris H: Industrial Archaeology of Dartmoor: Newton Abbot: 1972-: 185; 1990-: G E WINDEATT LETTER).
