Firs Quarry
Firs Quarry
This is a photo of the main passage in Firs quarry. Quarrying on Combe Down started around the 1600's but became famous when Ralph Allen took over the quarries and built Prior Park (1740) as a showpiece. All the underground quarries here are being filled with concrete and a major part of Bath's history will be lost forever.
