Disused quarry

The quarry is smaller than the disused Bonhill Quarry Link which is located about 250 metres to the WSW. Map evidence also shows that it fell into disuse at an earlier period than Bonhill Quarry: on the second-edition OS map (revised c.1896/97), it is already labelled an "old quarry"; the map revision of c.1914 shows trees growing within the pit.
