I have come accross what I belive to be a Horse Whim Plat at East Wheal Agar eastern section.
It is on the other side of the Liskeard Caradon Railway (to South Caradon) from engine shaft which in now a typicle inverted cone, The Whim Plat is revetted alongside the railway and is 12mtrs in diameter with the Mallior Stone in the center.
I cannot find any referance to this Horse Whim so is this a new find?
Please look at the Photos at Agar East.
