Granite Spur, Wyche Upper Quarry
Granite Spur, Wyche Upper Quarry
Why this spur of rock was left unquarried is not known, but it may have been left to stop rock fragments descending onto properties below when blasting took place. In some other quarries on the Malverns concrete barriers had to be erected.
