Full Description

SK 334630 Slack Hill, Quarry Track. A paved quarry track that led from Slack Hill. It started at the Lord Nelson public house (now gone). The paved way extends through at least 3 fields and was visible in October 1976. (1) This presumably refers to Ambervale Quarry, now marked 'disused' on OS maps, but not so on 6" edition of circa 1920. A quarry at 'Amber Hill, or Slack' is among those listed by Farey. It was stated to produce pulpstones. (2)
