Higher LaneA beautiful row of stone built cottages perched high on the hillside and commanding outstanding views over the countryside. With its setted road and stone walls the top end of this cul de sac is one of the most delightful roads in the district.

Because these cottages and others nearby were once the homes of quarry workers there is a maze of footpaths around them, many of them paved with stone slabs. One even has a tunnel where it passes beneath the remains of a long disused quarry building. Note that only about half the road as marked on the Google map is accessible to vehicles. The remainder is all private but accessible on foot.
