Strongs Quarry

Strong’s Quarry (Eastgate) was the most impressive and also the largest entrance, and lay in a huge mined depression, almost a quarry, about 50 yards long and 1000 ft wide. There is now no remaining trace – it is now a field. In one place there were 60ft cliffs with the entrance at the bottom. There were two lofty entrances approximately 20 ft high and 15 ft wide, side by side in an 80 ft deep cutting leading to the typical rectangular mine passages about 12ft high and 10ft wide. This entrance was sealed in 1966.
