Description: West end of British Quarrying Company's Quarry, Allington. Looking SE. Subsidence hollows, on Hythe Beds. The craters have developed on a surface of Hythe Beds, cleared of the 'overburden' of clays and sand of the Sandgate and Folkestone Beds, preparatory to quarrying. They have been produced by subsidence of material into pipes and fissures within the Hythe Beds, and illustrate the continuous process of solution of limestone beds by underground waters.
