Old Chalk Pit on Moneybury Hill
Old Chalk Pit on Moneybury Hill
While the Chilterns are made of chalk the level top has a layer of clayey deposits which means that the land is short of lime, As a result a number of small chalk quarries were dug along the edge of the ridge to provide lime to improve the land. This hollow would appear to be such a quarry.
