Location :
Somerset

Grid Ref : SS8183042815
Summary : A large, probably 19th century gravel quarry, 100m north-east of Larkbarrow cottage has been surveyed and transcribed from aerial photographs.
More information : A large gravel quarry, SS 8183 4281, lies in rough grassland 100m to the north-east of Larkbarrow cottage, at about 395m above OD. This oval feature is 27.2m long and 26m wide with an entrance on its south-west side. A substantial spoil heap standing over 1m high lies to the south-west. The quarry most probably dates from the mid-19th century and would have provided a convenient supply of gravel for the construction of the farm buildings and boundary walls. (1)
The quarry was recorded at 1:2500 scale using differential GPS as part of an archaeological survey of the Larkbarrow area. The survey was undertaken by the Exeter office of English Heritage at the request of the Exmoor National Park Authority. A client report was produced as part of the work and is available from the NMRC, Swindon. (2)
The quarry is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards and has been transcribed as part of the Exmoor National Mapping Programme Survey. (3-4)
