Quarry at Coppy Wreath of Nookton Fell
Quarry at Coppy Wreath of Nookton Fell
The very minor rise of Coppy Wreath - a mere interruption on a gently rising moorland ridge - is given a spot height of 479m; the quarry in the photograph (which is not shown on maps at a scale of either 1:25,000 or 1:50,000) must have taken that point away as it's shown as lying S. of the estate road which now crosses at the far edge of the excavation. It appears that no stone is taken from this quarry; it's simply a source of surfacing material for the estate road.
