Two excellent freestone quarries near the summit of Lanton Hill, the stone in general is of first rate quality but owing to the bad access to them they are not very much used, one of them only employes about six men & the other is very seldom worked; there have been some very fine fossils got here in the form of Shells & Trees; one, a Shell is sent to O.S.O.
