News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Frindsbury Chalk Quarry

Although linked with Frindsbury Cement Works on here access was via the train tunnel to this Quarry to the right of All Saints Church at Frindsbury or behind it and surrounded by the old Tennis Courts and Cricket Field, before they moved on to Frogs Island down near Upnor, and also by the suggested longest Tithe Barn in England which is under restoration.

This used to be one of my play areas in the 1950`s/60`s and was frequently by many kid`s not just myself.

We are about to lose this quarry and although this idea has been in the thro`s for about 6yrs it may be turned into some money earning venture for investers!

This link will tell

A good view at 3.34 minutes and at 7.07 minutes the old bomb crater in the corn field with trees growing with the Sanspereil pub in the distant far left corner.

Picture of tunnel entrance for the train in the chalk quarry to the front of the church and Commissioners Road.
