Old quarry spoil heaps at Ham Hill Country Park
Centuries of quarrying the golden "Ham" stone from Ham Hill has left behind this landscape of lumps and bumps, now part of the Ham Hill Country Park. Signs request that visitors on bikes should keep to the waymarked paths, but the erosion on these grassed-over spoil heaps shows that not everyone can resist the temptation.
