Dryhill Picnic Site

Dryhill Picnic site was originally a stone quarry. Quarrying exposed exceptional rock formations of hard, sandy limestone and loosely cemented sandstone, rich in the green mineral, glauconite and so Dryhill became a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The quarry closed in the 1950s. Since then nature has reclaimed the site, creating woodlands that are ideal for picnics, family visits and amateur geologists. Exceptional rock formations exposed on the site called Hythe Beds are thought to have been deposited 115 million years ago.
