Bristle Bent Grasses at Knack Mine, Steeperton on Dartmoor

I've just been writing up about Steeperton Tor, and its nearby tinners hut (brilliantly preserved) and mining activity (fascinating).

I wanted to share this photograph of the almost indiscernible mine platform of Knack Mine (originally called Wheal Virgin, in 1799).

The tinner's hut even has a little cubby hole shelf at one end.
