Small sandstone quarry located on a geological outcrop extending across the northern half of Southwood Common in a south-east to north-westerly direction. The quarry is roughly circular in plan, c.20m in diameter and heavily covered with vegetation, although its southern half remains exposed as an outcrop. It was probably opened up for use during the second half of the 19th century. Recently [in 1987] it has been used for dumping domestic rubbish. (1)
