The Claverton Court development (Henbury House and Retford House) occupies the site of open freestone quarries dating back to the late 1800s. Freestone is so-called because it can be sawn or 'squared up' in any direction, unlike other rocks such as slate, which forms distinct layers.Stone quarrying on Claverton Down and Bathampton Down dates back to the Roman occupation of Britain and major quarrying along the southern ridge of Bath has been going on since the sixteenth century. The last active Bath Stone quarry (Combe Down Quarry) has been in continuous operation since 1850 under the ownership of the Hancock family and the open workings/quarry floor this apartment block sits on was also worked by the Hancocks as far back as the 1890s. The development is also just to the west of the line of the ancient Wansdyke.
