Possible Quarry NW of Fernhill Farm, Beausale

Description of this historic site

The site of a possible quarry dating to the Imperial period. It is known from a field name marked on the 1842 Tithe map and is possibly still visible as a deep pond. It is situated 700m south of Thorny Coppice.

Notes about this historic site

1 On the 1842 tithe map, a field centred on the above NGR was called Marl Pit Ground.
2 No other reference to this field could be found but the field now does contain a large pool, surrounded by trees, of amorphous shape, which is quite deep, and which might represent the remains of a quarry.
