Full description

Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

Series of three quarries marked on the late 19th century historic map, to the south of the road (not shown on the Tithe Map). The two at the western end are marked as 'Old Quarry', while that at the eastern end is just marked as 'Quarry', suggesting a progression in usage.


Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

The three areas of workings are shown on the early 20th century (1906) historic map; those at the western end are not labelled, while that to the east is marked as 'Old Quarry', indicating they have all fallen out of use by this time.


Ordnance Survey, 2018, MasterMap 2018 (Cartographic). SDV360652.

Only the largest (and most recently used) eastern quarry shown on the modern mapping. Map object partly based on this source.
