Full Description

Fields named "Lower and Higher Kiln" on the Tithe Map imply the existence of a limekiln. [1] Two old quarries are marked on the 1887-8, 1st edition map, both of which are visible on aerial photographs. [2] The larger of the two quarries is marked on the modern (1980) map of the area. The smaller quarry lies 70m to the south west of the possible kiln site at SS 9195 3884 and is no longer marked on Ordnance Survey maps of the area. It was, therefore, plotted during the Brendon Hills Mapping Project. [3,4]
