The Bartholomew Soapstone Quarry in Blandford.
The soapstone quarry is only 60 feet long, 30 feet wide and 10 to 15 feet deep indicating that relatively little soapstone was quarried. After studying this one, Russ and I realized that Chester Road used to zigzag thru this area, using the historic overlay on GAIA we realized we were looking on the wrong side of the road and that when modern day Chester Road was built most of the quarry operation was demolished. #blandfordma
