Visited with DHL & Lost Explorer and a odd game of Rock paper scissors for 1st report :crazy

Hard to find history on this place but found this Moneystone Quarry has been quarried by the Sibelco Group since the late 1960's for silica sands, mainly for the production of container glass and ceramics.

Quarrying came to a stop in September 2011 after a planning application to extend the quarry further was rejected.
Laver Leisure purchased the 420 acre site to develop a new 50 million leisure complex

Did find this as well http://www.youtube.com/user/MoneystoneQuarry#p/u

Huge site but did all of it with loads of dodging Security LOL
