Disused mica drags on Dartmoor
These 8 little parallel concrete walls, the remains of former clay working in this area, are nearly 80 metres long, their southern end close to SX5759 : Disused settling tank near Headon Clay Works. The drags were used for settling out mica, and led into SX5759 : Disused settling tank near Headon Clay Works and its neighbour. In the background are prominent spoil heaps covered in gorse, on the edge of Crownhill Down.
