Type and Period (1)
Two quarry pits of unknown date are visible on aerial photographs, centred on TM47066177 and 47116167. Both pits are marked on the 1st and 2nd edition Ordnance Survey maps of 1884 and 1904, as well as the current base maps. No indication is given for their original use, but it is probable they were excavated for land improvement purposes. The northernmost pit is circa 45m wide and 65m long, and has been partially infilled and ploughed by 1942, the remainder being overgrown. The southernmost pit is roughly circular with a diameter of circa 30m, and appears to be wholly filled with vegetation. (S1-S6).
