Did you know that there's a disused quarry behind the stone circle at the park? It's made from limestone and was used as a source of stone for the Manor and other estate buildings. It's also a great habitat for insects and amphibians. Volunteers help us to conserve the rock face by removing ivy. We also coppice small trees in the quarry area to vary the habitats available.

We're creating a surfaced footpath through the quarry to make it easier for all to explore. The quarry is located behind the stone circle (Click here for a What3Words location).

The stone circle is a favourite of local children. The quarry is located in the trees behind.

Volunteers help us to conserve the Quarry as a habitat for a variety of wildlife.
