ABANDONED LIME KILN BUILDING NEW QUAY DEVON

A derelict and overgrown stone arch and steps lead nowhere alongside derelict lime kilns at the long abandoned and little known port of New Quay, Tamar Valley, Devon, SW England, UK. These and other derelict buildings, an inclined plain and remnants of the old mineral railway are poignant reminders of a once bustling Victorian industrial hamlet and mining port on the steep, winding banks of the river Tamar, the natural boundary between Devon and Cornwall. New Quay was formerly an important copper, tin and later arsenic port serving local mines but was abandoned early in the twentieth century. Due to the importance of this site in the development of pioneering mining skills and technology which were exported around the whole world, the site is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Mining Landscape of Cornwall and West Devon no 1215.
