Emsworthy Rocks East Quarry, Harrow Barrow. Small group of quarries on the north side of the eastern Emsworthy outcrop where work focused on four modest faces. All four faces were served by spurs from the tramway. Overburden is dumped adjacent to the working areas. A small outlying quarry associated with this group was connected by a well worn track but may have been unsuccessful judging by the huge quantity of waste stone dumped in and around the working.
