ST4717 : Quarrying at the northern end of Hamdon Hill

Quarrying at the northern end of Hamdon Hill
Quarrying at the northern end of Hamdon Hill
This shows the quarry workings at the northern end of Hamdon Hill, within the Hamdon Hill Country Park. The interior of this part of the hill has been scooped out by many centuries of quarrying (some dating back to the Iron Age) and although this part of the hill is dedicated to conservation and recreation, limited permission has been given to allow some quarrying; this is supposed to meet demand for the characteristic stone, as well as improve the safety and appearance of this part of the hill.
