    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.
    All quarrying finally came to a stop on the 30th of 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 with adventure and water sport facilities along with 150 self catering lodges, the planning application for this is still yet to be approved though...

    Was a good explore, plenty to see and lots of ladders to climb.

    We only covered the area highlighted below, so there is still a huge amount to look around, but the place is being demolished so best be quick if you want to look.

    We decided to head off after nearly having a run in with the demolition people who decided to park right where we needed to go past.

    There are a load of offices and laboratories that looked interesting, however they appeared to be well locked up.
