Fox and Grape Public House and Smalewell Quarry

Formerly known as the Smalewell Inn, the Fox and Grapes pub stands above the road which led down to Smalewell Quarry in a little hamlet known in the nineteenth century as Jumbles Well. By 1866 the pub had taken on its current name, and following a terrible accident in 1895, when a young girl fell to her death over the edge of Smalewell Quarry, was chosen as the venue for her inquest.
