Huntley Wood
Huntley Wood
Huntley Wood disguises an old sand and gravel quarry. It's huge and the sign says it's being restored.

There are many similar quarries in this area. Restoration appears to involve smoothing out the harsher edges, filling in the lakes, and planting silver birch, rhododendrons, holly, and other strong and quick growing plants to hide the massive hole from sight.
