Full Description

One of five small quarries. Some are associated with the construction of nearby stone field banks but others appear to be shallow quarrying for building stone. [1,2] The quarry is not depicted on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map; however, a routeway leads to this approximate location, where it terminates. [3] This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project. [4]
