More information : A small post-medieval quarry is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork to the south-east of Beggar's Knap. The quarry, which is centred at approximately SS 8271 4679 cut into the east facing slope of Beggar's Knap, measures approximately 27 metres in diameter. It is shown, but not annotated on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map, under extensive tree cover, suggesting that the quarry was out of use by the time of publication. There are several other quarries in the area, and may have been used to provide stone for the construction of the nearby road or path during the early 19th Century (1-2).
