Stoneycombe Quarry workings from viewing platform
Stoneycombe Quarry workings from viewing platform, taken 6 years ago
A panoramic view across this working limestone quarry.

The deeper the quarrying goes the more it is affecting the natural springs in the adjacent limestone outcrop on Kingskerswell Common and Kingskerswell Downs where there are sites of prehistoric settlements. Over the years more and more of the limestone is likely to be extracted and one wonders if that could threaten the prehistoric site on Miltor Mator Common as well as those on Whilborough Common and Whilborough Downs.
