More information : A quarry is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork approximately 75 metres ENE of Toms Hill Farm (circa 120 metres from the farmhouse) centred at circa SS 81254308. The quarry consists of an irregularly shaped pit up to 20 metres across at its widest point, with a narrow entrance gulley visible on the south-west face. It is not possible to ascertain the function of the quarry from the aerial photographs alone. The date of the earthwork is unclear, but it is annotated as Old Quarry on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map and therefore had passed out of use prior to its publication in 1889. (1-2)
