Buddle House in Biddlecombe
Buddle House in Biddlecombe
This round, stone building housed a 'buddle'. The buddle is a stone lined pit or tank used for the sedimentation of ores, and there has to be a plentiful water source nearby. In this case the buddle would have to been used to obtain lead which was mined locally, and the stream which runs through the combe provided ample water.
