Quarry (Huckers Lane)


This is part of the sheer side of a track leading from Huckers Lane (in Selborne, Hampshire) to a field gate.

Immediately above Huckers Cottage is an outcrop of the Greensand, a small scarp, the southern end of the quarry dug out of Church Meadow. This does look man made but has been interestingly formed by the large tree roots cutting the malmstone into blocks.


The drawing is 12×16″, made using Indian ink on kaolin-coated board. It is presented in a black tray frame that measures 34x44cm.
