SK5459 : New houses on Berry Hill Sand Quarry site

near to Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

New houses on Berry Hill Sand Quarry site
New houses on Berry Hill Sand Quarry site
Much of Mansfield is built on sandstone. It has been quarried for many years and used for moulds in ironfounding. Together with locally available coal this was the basis of several former ironfoundries in the town. This quarry, now closed is being used for new housing.
In the 1960s I remember walking here, along a public footpath through a field of wheat or barley, before the quarrying dug so deeply.
