Clay Pits near Calvert 2
This view looking south from close by the bridleway between Calvert and Greatmoor is of the clay pits at the southern end of Calvert Landfill Site, see SP6923 : Calvert Landfill Site. These clay pits provided the raw material for the Calvert Brickworks which opened in 1900, and by the time the brick production at Calvert ceased in 1991, eight huge pits had been dug over the years, see also SP6923 : Clay Pits near Calvert. From 1977 the pits have been successively used for landfill, beginning with pits 4, 5 and 6. In the foreground is pit 7, the north side of which is now being filled in, and beyond that is the last pit, pit 8, the major part of which is in the next grid square.
