HER Number:MDV75208
Name:Quarry in Snaxland Wood, Clovelly

Summary

An irregular hollow earthwork is visible on Lidar-derived images from 2003 and is likely to be the pit of a post-medieval or modern quarry depicted on 1880s-1890s Ordnance Survey maps. It is likely to have ceased use before 1906 and may have been a source of material for the adjacent trackway between Court Farm, Clovelly and Mouth Mill.

'Quarry' on 1886 Ordnance Survey map. Not indicated as such on 1905 edition. Other details: 2278.


Hegarty, C. + Knight, S., 2011 - 2012, North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme Project (Interpretation). SDV349018.

An irregular probable quarry pit, 30 metres by 20 metres, is visible on images derived from Lidar data flown in 2003. A quarry is marked in this location on late nineteenth century Ordnance Survey maps and the pit is shown but not named on early twentieth century Ordnance Survey mapping, indicating that active use of the quarry ceased at some time between the 1880s and 1906. The quarry is likely to have been post-medieval or modern in date, perhaps a source of material for the adjacent trackway between Court Farm, Clovelly and Mouth Mill.
