    I visited the Mount pleasant quarry site in Combe down, having visited it many years previously with some mates, it hadn't really changed in the ten odd year gap, the nettles and buddleias were as overgrown as ever! After an explore around the stoneworks, i headed over to the portal, but disappointingly found it securely locked, no bat tunnel for me! Some history:

    A short distance southeast of Upper Lawn was the large
    Mount Pleasant Quarry. The eastern part probably closed pre-1914. It
    was completely backfilled in the 1980s to form playing
    fields. There was some underground working here, and
    there is now a bat habitat. The western part of the quarry
    still exists, disused and closed off pending a decision on
    what to do with the site. This latter part was briefly worked
    between the wars and again in the 1980s (source: Journal of the Bath Geological Society, No. 23, 2004)

    Jackdaw mine portal, just off summer lane.
