Formerly called Plymouth Dock, Devonport, in Devon, is now a district of Plymouth. Devonport merged with Plymouth and East Stonehouse at the beginning of the first World War to form what would later become the city of Plymouth. Devonport is now best known as the location of Her Majesty’s Naval Base Devonport, commonly known as Devonport Dockyard, the largest naval base in western Europe.

Wheal Cumpstone tin mine Devon Library and Information services Devon Holne Tin Mines, 'Wheal Cumpstone an historical and archaeological survey 1978'

 

Wheal Cumpston

Wheal Compton  Dartmoor Central, Devon.    OS Grid SX672723

Lat/long 1830 Tin Shafts

 

Wheal Cumpston (Wheal Combestone; Steepehill), Dartmeet, Southern Dartmoor, Dartmoor & Teign Valley District, Devon, England, UK

 

A small but ancient tin mine located within Combestone Woods, half a mile down river from Dartmeet on the western side of the river. All that remains is an overgrown gulley and pits encorporating a ruined Tinner's hut and an adit (drive) below the main gulley at the bottom of the hill.

 

I have found no evidence of CUMPSTONs being connected with this mine but would welcome any information.
