China Clay Workings (South Dartmoor), Devon


  • Located in Shaugh Prior, Devon, South West England, England
  • Zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting of the accompanying Google map and you'll see an extraordinary landscape. These vast china clay workings rise from the flank of the moors. The workings are a collection of china clay works that are marked on the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map. These works are:
  • Shaugh Lake China Clay Works
  • Wotterwaste China Clay Works
  • Lee Moor China Clay Works
  • Whitehill Yeo China Clay Works
  • Cholwichtown China Clay Works
  • Headon China Clay Works
  • Spend time in South Devon or the southern section of Dartmoor National Park, East Cornwall or the Tamar Valley and it's likely that you'll see the workings
  • There are many china clay workings in South West England. The most obvious are the Cornish Alps. To the best of our knowledge, the most remote are the Red Lake China Clay Works on the high south plateau of Dartmoor National Park.
