Excerpt from Sixth Annual Report of the Belfast Naturalists' Field Club: With Statement of Accounts, and a List of the Office-Bearers and Members, for the Year Ending 31st March, 1869 Large blocks of stone that daily leave the quarries, to satisfy the increasing demand for this material. In some of the quarries there are beautiful examples of trap dykes, and horizontal beds of trap forced in between the layers of sandstone, sometimes thinning out into mere bands, and again forking like the venation of leaves. The growing reputation of Scrabo stone has caused a wonderful increase in the trade, and the whole face of the hill is now a busy hive of workmen, who turn out all the kinds of stone, from the rough rubble to the largest blocks suited to every kind of structure. Although the rock has been supposed by many to be Carboniferous, it has recently been determined to be of New Red Sandstone age. Passing down from the mountain, the party visited a farm-house, where a supposed font from Movilla Abbey was deposited. Having seen it, the members came to the conclusion that the stone was not a font, but the base of a large stone cross, and recommended that it should be taken back and left amid the ruins of the edifice it once adorned. Having enjoyed a delightful trip, the party returned. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
