Cocking lime works

The earliest known reference to quarrying at Cocking is from September 1833 when an earthquake caused a rockfall in a chalk pit, killing a certain William Marshall who was working there. Later, in the 1861 Census Return it was reported that 'James Bennett, a tramp, slept in lime kiln.' By 1874 (the time of the first 25" Ordnance Survey map of the area), lime procuction was concentrated between the site of mediaeval archery ranges called The Butts and a quarry further up the hillside. These two quarries remained the focus of production until the 1990s when all work ceased, with the works coming to occupy the lower quarry adjacent Cocking Hill.

I wanted to take a look round here on the way down to the sea, so I stopped by, with me and myself. Was real easy, nice and quite, it would seem the chair and some vehicle's are gone, looking at reports from the past, still found some photos in the place.
