The Schlade Grubenfeld ground monument extends on the northern side of the street In der Schlade between Grube and Kley . It is a part of the nature reserve Die Schlade in the Hebborn district of Bergisch Gladbach in the Rheinisch-Bergisch district .


The area of ​​the ground monument Schlade Grubenfeld owes its present appearance to the earlier mining and the extraction of limestone in the quarries . The traces of mining through the Prinz Wilhelm mine are difficult to see because they were affected by the later quarry work. The exception to this is the pinge of the Moll tunnel, which has been broken and extends to the street.


The rock face at the entrance to the Grubenfeld quarry consists of massive, gray limestone. Here lived corals , clams and brachiopods that were crushed by the surf and piled into powerful banks. This area belongs to the Variscan Mountains , which stretched across Europe in ancient times .

The profile picture of the quarry shows a mighty stromatopore block reef with actinostroma, stromatopora and stromaporella. In addition to the stroma pores, there are also massive limestones
