Doesn't sound right to me, mining subterranean bluestones. How did they find them?

Well to clarify my earlier post Nigel, what I was really trying to say (without any great knowledge about the subject I have to admit) was that not all bluestones had to be on the surface surely as there would have been some underground but still part of the same collection. If those above ground were taken first and it could be seen that there were more underneath and they needed a few more, then they would have dug them out wouldn't they? After that the quarried section could have just been left, silted up or purposely filled and lost to us.
