Tyning Quarry

Tyning Quarry, also known as Tennis Court Quarry or Mould’s Quarry was at the top of the hill near Hazelbury Quarry and to the north of the ‘Backdoor’ owned by Pictor & Sons and worked from the 1840’s. They eventually tunneled north to to the escarpment on the A4 now known as the Clift Quarry entrance. This is part of the ‘Front Hill Series’ of quarries.

In the gardens at the rear of the row of terraced houses at the bottom of Love Lane is an entrance in the cliff face known as ‘Henry’s Hole’ This entrance consists of two chambers about 4 ft in height, possibly used for rubble stone before Tyning Quarry was dug.
