Marden Mine Surrey

This was explored shortly after we had been for a look round Godstone and in my mind even a fair bit smaller than Godstone it was much more enjoyable and nicer to photograph

Quick copy and paste...

Marden Mine is the easternmost of the major quarries along Godstone Hill. This is very similar to Main Series with an almost identical development and usage. This quarry was also a secure store during WW2 and continued to be worked for hearthstone for a short period after WW2.
The area around Marden Mine is riddled with numerous smaller holes and collapses indicating the remains of more hearthstone mines

on with some pict0rs
