Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique and most unusual opportunity to acquire approximately 26 acres of land comprising wooded/amenity land and the former Mulberry Downs Quarry - a large disused open cast mine.

10 acres of wooded amenity land including Mulberry Downs Quarry, an open cast mine approx. 275m long x 40m wide x 36m deep

Just under 15 acres of woodland near Withielgoose Mills comprising the original mine workings, undulating land with small ponds and semi-mature/mature trees etc

Approx. 1 acre of wooded/overgrown land with road frontage situated to the south of Mulberry Downs Quarry

SITUATION
The land is comprised within three parcels situated to the east of Withielgoose Mills, approximately a mile south of Ruthernbridge and about 2 miles south west of the large town of Bodmin. The main A30 is about 3 miles distant. The land is situated within the parish of Lanivet.

THE PROPERTY
The former open cast tin mine quarry was in use from about 1859 until about 1916. The area is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest because the opencast working has exposed excellent geological qualities of the rock. The sides of the mine are almost sheer. Mulberry Hill Mine was in its day the largest open cast working mine in Britain and the quarry is approximately 275m long x 40m wide x 36m deep. The surrounding land is mainly covered with bushes, oak trees, hazel, gorse, sycamore and bluebells etc. There are two access tracks leading from the road to the quarry site.

The site is a most unusual wildlife haven having been largely undisturbed for many years. The site has potential for use as a sports/activity venue i.e. rock climbing, abseiling, zip wire etc, subject to appropriate planning permission, health and safety risk assessment and environmental consents etc.

The parcel of woodland to the east of the quarry site extends to just under 15 acres or thereabouts and has more recently been used as amenity hobby land. The land contains various former tip sites and shafts. The woodland is accessed over a track leading through woodland in other ownership. The track joins the Council maintained road running through Withielgoose Mills by the ford.

To the south of the quarry land on the opposite of the access track is approximately 1 acre of wooded amenity land also covered with bushes, gorse and young trees etc.

VIEWING: At any reasonable time and in accordance with the Countryside Code.
POTENTIAL PURCHASERS VIEW THE LAND AT THEIR OWN RISK.
THE QUARRY HAS SHEER CLIFF SIDES WITH A NEAR VERTICAL DROP AND DUE CARE AND ATTENTION MUST BE TAKEN WHEN VIEWING THE SITE.
NO DOGS OFF LEADS. THERE IS NO APPARENT ACCESS ROUTE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE QUARRY.
