Holne: course of Wheal Emma Leat
Holne: course of Wheal Emma Leat
At the point where it is crossed by the bridleway from Fore Stoke to Holne Lee and rather overgrown with gorse bushes each side of the channel. The leat is now largely dry. It is 9.25 miles long, was constructed in 1859 and ran from a weir on the upper Swincombe river, below Whiteworks. Its purpose was to boost the water flow in the river Mardle, much of which was then diverted into a second leat to power waterwheels on the Wheal Emma copper mine west of Buckfastleigh
