Vitifer Tin Mine (Disused), Devon


  • Located in Postbridge, Devon, South West England, England
  • Warren House Inn is a remote and isolated pub by the B3212 that cuts across the high moors of Dartmoor National Park. Stand outside the pub facing east and you're looking out across some of the National Park's most beautiful rolling downland*. You also notice that the landscape is cut by deep gullies. These gullies are the remains of Vitifer Tin Mine which once played an important role in Dartmoor's tin mining past. Broadly speaking, this downland is also what remains of a huge rabbit warren where rabbits were farmed for their meat to fuel the tin miners. A stroll south of Vitifer Tin Mine is Golden Dagger Tin Mine (Disused)
  • *The vast sweep of Hamel Down can be seen behind Challacombe Down and Birch Tor
