Crescent-shaped pit
Crescent-shaped pit
This pit measures 30 metres across, from east to west. It appears artificial, and, if a former quarry, may be associated with a ruined lime-kiln site located about 200 metres to the south: NS4380 : Ruined lime-kiln.

The pit is shown from the other end, on a murkier day, in NS4480 : Crescent-shaped pit.
