More information : A quarry with associated spoil heaps, of probable post-medieval or twentieth century date is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork, approximately 175 metres to the north-east of Tom's Hill Farm at circa SS 81314325. The quarry consists of two irregularly shaped shallow pits up to ten metres in diameter connected by a shallow scoop, with spoil heaps circa 15 metres long visible along their southern sides.
The quarries are not marked on the first edition Ordnance Survey map and may therefore post-date its publication date of 1889. The earthworks appear a little lower on aerial photographs of 1977 and may have been damaged by modern agricultural improvement. (1-2)
