Kingsdown Limestone quarry wiltshire 2013

This was our first port of call for the evening and it didnt disappoint,not only did i manage not to get lost but i didnt get stuck in that awkward crevice which is the known as the letter box(i think).


History Blatantly stolen

Kingsdown Quarry also commonly known as Swan Mine is a small bath stone quarry lying under the hillside along the road from Bathford to Kingsdown. The Main entrance to the quarry is opposite the Swan Inn which was once the Quarry managers house, the inn its self is held to the hill side by great iron chains anchored ito the buried workings of the quarry itself. Kingsdown Quarry was producing stone as far back as 1833.
