Working face, Seacombe Quarry
Working face, Seacombe Quarry
The stone of principal interest for building was just above the quarry floor. To save effort, it was won by extracting it from under the upper strata, so forming caves. The National Trust have fenced off the quarry face and caves to deter climbers and explorers.
