Slade Rocks Quarry

Notes: Slade Rocks is the name given to the sprawling rock field of emergent outcrops in Kennick Copse, on the south-west edge of Kennick Reservoir. At the rocks’ eastern terminus is this quarry, now a car park, which shows a buried tor. Tithe Maps show both ‘Slade Rock’ and ‘Slade Rocks’ for two enclosures here but both have since become lost and omitted from subsequent records.

The buried tor is reminiscent of that at Two Bridges Quarry, which geologist David Leslie Linton described as a good example of tor formation.

Kennick Cottage

Only shown on the oldest of historic OS Maps. Would be interesting to see if any foundations remain.
