Former quarry
The viewpoint is close to that of NS3878 : Former quarry, in the low ground of the former quarry, but the present picture shows the slopes that make up the quarry's southern edge.

The item just linked mentions that these slopes descend in terraces, and the present picture illustrates this more clearly.

See NS3778 : Former quarry for a view eastwards along the low ground of the former quarry.
