    Due to the number of images, I had to split this report up.

    continuing the standard mine/quarry shots

    There were a few bits of stone that had already been worked on

    and the obligatory cock and balls, without which no trip would be complete.

    The square trial shaft dug by the Bath & Portland Stone Firms Ltd in 1936 in order to see what the stone quality was like at deeper depths.

    The old boot was interestingly different from the more usually found hobnailed boots.

    It was quite disappointing to see the amount of effort that someone had gone to in order to use the shaft as a dump for old tyres.

    We saw no sign of the pulley or crane in Oort's trip report, so either we missed a passage or someone has moved it.

    The quarry is not difficult to navigate, and contains very little by way of miner's discarded tools, but it is relatively litter free, (apart from the tyres), and quite a pleasant way to spend an hour or so of the weekend.
