Westwood Chalk Pits, Beverley
Westwood Chalk Pits, Beverley
Imerys Minerals off the southern tip of Beverley Westwood, looking southeast from the Broadgate entrance. The disused windmill, one of at least four dotted around the Westwood, may well have been used previously to crush chalk boulders in the production of whiting - the chalk powder once used in bread as well as paints and cosmetics.
