Quarry and river from Thames Path in Hartslock Woods
Quarry and river from Thames Path in Hartslock Woods
Glimpsed through the autumn foliage, the exposed limestone face of a long disused quarry can be seen in the right centre of this shot, taken from the Thames Path in Hartslock Woods. The river itself is to the right. The barbed wire in the foreground provide scant protection from the vertical quarry edge.

This quarry is reputed to date back to the days of the construction of Reading Abbey, when it supplied stone by boat to the building site a few miles downstream.
