White Coppice Quarries: Photography by:

The quarries south of Dean Black Brook are known as Black

Coppice quarries and are clearly visible from White

Coppice, and they are easily accessible after a short steep

climb. They are high up and to the right of Black Dean

Brook. The quarries must have closed very quickly, for there

are several millstones left in situ, showing to this day the

skills of those long gone quarrymen.

This is an ideal area to roam if you only have an hour or so

to spare. There are also fantastic views from here., If you

look carefully you will find embankments where old rail

tracks ran, and you may even find the occasional rail.

To the north of the brook is White Coppice quarry.
