The Tinworking Landscape of Dartmoor in a European Context.

Papers presented at Conference in Tavistock 6 - 11th May 2016

Edited by Phil Newman


Gentlemen and Rogues - A History of Brimpts Tin Mine, Dartmeet, Dartmoor

A fascinating story of the history of the tin mines near Brimpts Farm,  Dartmeet. The main text is by Dr Tom Greeves and tells the story of the mine through extracts from mining journals and newspaper reports, along with research by DTRG members. This story brings the development of this mine to life, using characterful anecdotes. An additional section of the book about tin mining and ore processing on Dartmoor sets the story firmly in the Dartmoor landscape. The publication was funded by Moor Than Meets the Eye.


Brimpts Tin Mines Trail Guide

This takes the visitor along the 2 self guided trails at Brimpts Farm near Dartmeet, where there are remains of tin mines to be seen, along with a display room with interesting items to see. Choose from the South Mine Trail around the farm or the North Mine Trail on open moorland. The whole site is free of charge and open 365 days a year.

This has been funded by DNPA’s Moor than meets the eye project.
