    History

    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 into the buried workings of the quarry itself. Kingsdown Quarry was producing stone as far back as 1833 when it featured in a geological survey of the area.
