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.
