Here the quarry lake was enlarged and has steep rock cliff faces. It is extremely atmospheric and heavy tree cover make it sheltered and cool, and thus ideal for hellebores to flourish amongst tree ferns .Bamboos do well here and the South African Restios thrive.

 

The quarry lake had silted up with slurry which had found its way through the lakes when the estate ran a commercial dairy farm. This has been cleaned with enormous diggers and lined with clay, brought down from the top of the estate.

 

The quarry is now a much larger, natural water feature but retains its mysterious feel, with dramatic jagged rock faces and tales of a ghostly cavalier.
