Disused quarry below White Knowe
Disused quarry below White Knowe
The ruined building is named on old maps as Fairloans, as is the quarry. This name is currently used for a farm about 1km to the north-east alongside the disused railway. The rock extracted here was Carboniferous limestone which outcrops in a band among predonimant sandstone and probably was the derivation of the name, White Knowe.
