Corner of a sand and gravel quarry
Corner of a sand and gravel quarry
This break in the perimeter bund close to Mercote Hall Lane is on the eastern side of Coleman's sand and gravel quarry. In the absence of readily-accessible information my guess is that this land has been worked and restored; equally it may be fallow land awaiting exploitation. To the right is one of two towers for (presumably) washing and grading the material. Its location appears to be SP23008127.
