This little known tin mine lies a few hundred metre from the Red Lake China Clay Works on the crest of a broad ridge overlooking the River Avon. On the Dartmoor HER (MDV61746) it is described as “Earthwork and walling remains of two ruined post-medieval mine buildings and associated mine shafts and tips to the west of Huntingdon Warren, which may be the remains of Wheal Dorothy, mentioned in the late 18th century”. The mine is mentioned by Robert Burnard (1891) and William Crossing (1909).
