Small quarry which is difficult to find. We enquired at a house which we thought was nearby, and the chap insisted on getting in his car and taking us the remaining half mile or so personally! We later returned to show him some of the Wavellite we'd found ("So why would you want to come all this way to be looking for some o' dat?").
