Wrotham Quarry
Hansons Aggregates, Trottiscliffe Road, Addington, Kent, HE19 5DL

Formerly known as Olley Sand Pit

Olley sand pit was a quarry producing sand for the glass industry, and in particular to a grade suitable to coloured glass, which was also used locally. It is now part of Hansons Aggregates.

How to get here:

»

Road: M20 - Exit the M20 at Wrotham (A20), and then follow the A20 east towards Addington. Continue along it (London Road) until the turnoff on the left towards Trottiscliffe (Roughetts Road). Follow this over the M20 and then it bears left. The quarry will be on the left, just as the road bears right. Parking: roadside layby nearby. Footpath by side of quarry entrance. +

This location is private and has no or limited access only. There is a public footpath that runs from Trottiscliffe Road across the quarry roads which allows you to view the quarry itself; it then heads through a tunnel under the M20 to fields on the other side - this also used to be part of the quarry.
