    Nestled in the mountains of the Lake District is Kirkstone Slate Quarry. This quarry closed its doors in 2012 but has since been bought out by Burlington Slate Ltd, albeit that they did not take the 39 job losses back, nor does it look like they have used any of the buildings on site. What it does look like they are doing is using the very top workings as and when they need to, everything else is abandoned.

    A bit of history and the reason the quarry declined in recent years...
