HER Number:MDV113465
Name:Quarry Pit North of Higher Bagmores Farm

Summary

A probable quarry pit is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs taken between 1946 and 1969, perhaps associated with others in the vicinity. It is not depicted on the available historic mapping and its use is likely to pre-date the late-19th century. The pit may have been levelled.

An earthwork pit, circa 50 by 34 metres in extent, is visible on aerial photographs taken between 1946 and 1969. A clay pit is marked on historic mapping approximately 200 metres to the south-east, and the earthwork is interpreted as another extraction pit, probably of post-medieval or early-19th century date, since it is not depicted on the historic maps. The adjacent field boundary curves around the quarry and may post-date it. The pit is not visible on later available imagery and may have been levelled.
