A possible former quarry of medieval to 19th century date was visible on aerial photographs and digital images derived from lidar data as an earthwork pit to the north of Rutton Farm, Whimple. The pit was roughly oval in shape and measured approximately 25 by 15 metres in size. It might have cut the line of a possible former field boundary visible as a curvilinear earthwork ditch, recorded separately.
The pit was not marked on the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25 inch map and therefore probably passed out of use prior to the 1880s. The pit probably survives as an earthwork
