More information : Two small quarries lie adjacent to each other next to the track, 650m north-east of Larkbarrow corner, at about 430m above OD. Quarry A (SS 8272 4207), has a depth of 0.8m and is 7.8m in width and 15.1m in length. Quarry B (SS 8271 4206), is 1.2m deep, 10.3m wide and 10.6m in length with an entrance in its west side. Neither quarry has any associated spoil heaps. Both features most probably date from the 19th century and may be related to the construction of the track or the boundary walls. (1)

The quarry was recorded at 1:2500 scale using diferential GPS as part of an archaeological survey of the Larkbarrow area. The survey was undertaken by the Exeter office of English Heritage at the request of the Exmoor National Park Authority. A client report was produced as part of the survey work and is available from the NMRC, Swindon. (2)

The quarries have been transcribed from aerial photographs as part of the Exmoor National Mapping Programme survey. The pits are clearly visible on aerial photographs from the 1940s onwards. (3-4)
