Wheal Betsy

Wheal Betsy is an old Engine House just beside the A386 between Okehampton and Tavistock just outside Mary Tavy. In the 17, 18 and 1900 this area was very important as a mining centre. The mines yielded tin, lead, zinc and silver. Wheal Bestsy is also well known for its leaning tower. The site is in an exposed position so received strong gusts of wind and rain, over the years the National Trust have had tore point the tower and stabilise the walls to ensure it doesn’t fall down.
