Quarry tunnel at Burham
Quarry tunnel at Burham
This tunnel was dug to access a large chalk pit dug into the hillside below Bluebell Hill. The steel gates are open for anyone willing to brave the interior. The pits supplied chalk to APCM's Burham Cement Works (at TQ71876075), which commenced making Portland cement in 1854 and ceased operation in 1938.
