Erme Pits
Erme Pits
The edge of Erme Pits. These are the remains of medieval (and later) tin workings. There are heaps of stones and large gulleys that pass between large mounds of granite. At one time this must have been an industrial eyesore, but time has weathered the rocks and the Pits now support a good population of rabbits. No doubt the old tinners would have appreciated this!
