Kensworth Quarry - deepest level
Kensworth Quarry - deepest level
This view of TL0219 : Kensworth Chalk Quarry focuses on the deepest level of the quarry where water has collected in eau-de-Nil pools. Some of the industry associated with the workings can be seen at a much higher level beyond the pit.
Spot the parascender top right. Note - the prominent mast top centre is similar to the one seen in close-up here TL0119 : Radio Mast, Isle of Wight Lane but is I think the one at TL01441960
[Edit Dec 2010] I am obliged to Dylan Moore who tells me that there is a pipeline directly from this quarry taking chalk slurry all the way to a cement processing plant in Rugby, a Geograph photo of which can be seen here SP4875 : Second View from Rugby (now Cemex) Cement Tower
