Beachfields Quarry
Cormongers Lane, Redhill, Surrey

Beachfields Quarry is part of a once extensive sand extraction project operated by the Fullers' Earth Union Ltd, commenced in 1954; it was subsequently taken over by LaPorte Industries Ltd., and in recent years the exhaustion of material has led to the areas around Cormongers Lane to be wound down, with the upper part of the quarry now a landfill site.

How to get here:

»

Road: M25 - Exit the M25 at junction 8 and head south on the A217 towards Reigate. Turn left onto the A25 into Redhill, and then continue through town until you reach Redhill Station. Pass under the rail bridge and then continue up the hill and around into Nutfield Road. Turn left into Cormongers Lane and then continue down the hill until you reach Chilmead Lane. Parking: in the lane, limited. +

This location is private and has no or limited access only. There are gates opposite Chilmead Lane which affords a restricted view into the working quarry.
