The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


By the early 19th century, this part of Caradon Hill was divided into the Marke Valley Sett, an area of mining rights, and the West Rosedown Sett, sometimes called the Wheal Jenkins Sett. A number of granite posts, each incised 'MV' on one face, survive along the sett boundary.
