Arreton Down Marl Pit was a marl and chalk pit at Arreton Down and Downend on the Isle of Wight Estates.

In 1761, Thomas Esmont received £13 for 'taking care of the woods and the marl pit on Arreton Down' during the year[1]/

In 1930, Gus Read dug the chalk, and paid the Estate a royalty of 4 pence per yard for all chalk sold[2].
