    It's taken a year for me to get around to having enough photos to warrant a report on this place. After stopping by on the 2009 Wiltshire Quarryfest with 15 others led to more talks of cider than photo taking.

    So, fast forward almost exactly a year on, and the same cider based talk is going on, but this time just between myself, DHL and Carl. All feeling tired after not alot of sleep the night before, DHL having camera-fog issues, and Carl having mega torch fail.

    This year's trip down was only really a short visit as we had other places in mind, but was a good mooch, and ran into fellow comrades in the shape of Urbanity, Speed, Rigsby and Silent Motion.

    (2009) Got chainsaw? We didn't make it through to see if it's still there with the numerous other artefacts in the area.

    Unfortunately most of the quarry has now been stripped, including the office at the base of the shaft, but still PLENTY to see.​
