Ball Clay Cellar remains
Ball Clay Cellar remains
Ball Clay Cellar remains: When the ball clay deposits of south Devon were first exploited during the early 1700s most traffic in the county, including that of ball clay, went by packhorse. This meant a slow seven or eight mile journey from the pits around Preston and Bellamarsh to the nearest port of Teignmouth. Some five miles were cut from the journey by taking the clay to the tidal reaches of the Teign estuary at Hackney where storage buildings known as cellars were built. This is the derelict shell of one of those cellars on the north side of the river.
