Quarries

There are over 1,000 recorded quarries in Shropshire, varying in size from small pits to huge holes like Bayston Hill Quarry below.

 

 

The Romans were probably the first people in Shropshire to quarry stone in a scientific way and they used it in their buildings at settlements like Viroconium. In the Middle Ages, many quarries were operated by monks to obtain building stone for abbeys and other religious buildings. These are now overgrown and have become excellent wildlife sanctuaries.Up to the 19th Century, quarrying was a hard manual process with stone being removed and shaped by hand. The various tools used were :-

 

Pick

The Quarry Pick had a wooden handle up to 80cms long and a metal head with points on one or both ends. The points acted like a chisel but the long handle allowed the user to exert more force in the stroke. It was used to widen existing fissures in the rockor to make holes.The Carverís Pick was a miniature version of the quarry pick, with a handle about 30cms long. The tool was held with two hands and was used to shape stone blocks.

 

Wedge

Wedges were either wooden or metal and were used to split stone. Wooden wedges were too weak to break the stone directly but were inserted into rectangular holes made by the pick and then soaked in water. As the wood became saturated, it expanded and forced the stone to split along its natural bedding line or a fault. Metal wedges were also inserted into specially carved cuts and were simply hammered into the stone until it split

 

Plug and Feathers

This consisted of a central wedge (the plug) and two tapered wedges (the feathers). The feathers were inserted into a hole in the rock, their wider ends down, and the plug was then hammered down between them to split the rock. By using this tool on a line of holes, the quarrymen could control the line along which the stone split.

Point Chisel

This was a metal chisel about 30cms long and 2.5cms in diameter, with a pyramidal point at one end. The other end was flat or rounded. This tool was hit against the stone with a metal hammer, sometimes a wooden mallet, and was the basic chisel used for most carving, especially roughing-out and basic shaping. A slight variation on the point chisel was the punch, which tended to have a wider cutting edge, usually 0.5cms long. This wider edge was better suited to softer stones which could be shattered by using a point chisel. 

 

Tooth Chisel

This was a metal chisel about 20cms long and 2cms in diameter, with a toothed cutting edge at one end. It was hit with a metal hammer or sometimes a wooden mallet. The number of teeth on the cutting edge varied, usually between 3-5. The shape of the teeth affected the marks they left behind on the stone. it was used to remove any rough marks left by the point chisel and to prepare the surface for finer work with the flat chisel.

 

Flat Chisel

This was a metal chisel about 25cms long and 2cms in diameter, with a flat and sharpened cutting edge perpendicular to the line of the shaft. The wider versions were called bolsters and were used for flattening surfaces. 

Roundel

This was similar to the flat chisel except that its cutting edge was curved rather than flat. It was about 25cms long and 2cms in diameter. The curve of the cutting edge varied considerably from a semicircle to a barely discernible curve and the marks that it left on the stone retain the same form.  The roundel was used for rough and smooth work and was well-suited to delicate areas of carving since it had no corners that might catch on anything.

Channeller

This was designed for carving narrow channels in the stone. It was similar to a narrow flat chisel or roundel, with a cutting edge of 1cm and a shaft about 25cms long. The distinctive feature was the narrowness of the shaft immediately above the cutting edge. This allowed the tool to be inserted into deep crevices and hollows.

 

Saw

A saw could be used on almost any type of stones and they were widely used by the Romans. It consists of a long thin metal blade, about 0.5cm wide and often over 2 metres long. Normally these had a quarryman at each end but smaller saws were used by a single worker on soft stone such as limestone or sandstone. On soft stone, the blade was toothed while on harder stone it was flat and used in conjunction with abrasives mixed in water. The blade cut the stone by moving back and forth through this mixture of water and abrasives, grinding away at it. Long saws were also used to remove blocks from the rock face.

 

Drill

This was used to make a hole in the stone consisted of a drill bit, usually a chisel-like metal tool, set into a shaft connected to a wooden handle within which it could rotate freely. The shaft was driven by pulling back and forth on a cord wrapped around it several times. The cord was operated by one person while another directed the drill itself, deciding where the bit was placed and applying pressure on the handle. The speed of rotation and the force applied could both be varied.

 

Rasp

This was a type of file that was double-ended and between 12-40cms in length. It consisted of a shaft in the middle and two flattened ends covered with sharp points. The ends could be squared, rounded, pointed, flat or curved. The density of points varied between rasps depending on the fineness of the finish sought. There were different grades of rasp, some used for actually shaping the stone and others just for smoothing.

 

 

From the 19th Century, things became a bit easier with the introduction of steam engines to help lift the stone and cut it. Gunpowder was also widely used to break up the rock face.

 

 

Despite this, there was still a lot of manual work, especially in the making of granite setts for roads.

 

 

Modern quarrying is very mechanised and needs far fewer workmen.

 

 

Machines drill the holes in the face and charge them with explosive. Excavators pick up the blasted rock and place it into huge trucks that take it to the processing plant, where it is crushed and graded.

 

 

 

Shropshire has a wide varierty of minerals that have been quarried as can be seen from the gazetteer. The British Geological Survey has published a geological map that shows the distribution.
