    Report - Round Barn Quarry - Darwen, Lancashire - September 2021

    Report - Maenofferen Slate Quarry - Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales - August 2021

    This place has been covered loads of times (most recently in an excellent report by @HughieD ) but we've always thought it looked awesome and wanted to check it out. We had a full days childcare so thought we would do the 2 and a half hour drive down and check it out. This is by no means a...

    Report - Hurst Sand Quarry - Biddulph, Staffordshire - April 2021

    History - There isn't a lot of history available for this place. From what we can find online the quarry has been used for mineral extraction since at least 1877 up until 2014. There were plans to build houses on the site but it seems this has now fallen through. The latest plans are to re-open...

    I didn't have much hope in this explore prior to turning up...wasn't even sure I'd be able to get in at one point - but this one turned out to be a pearler! Probably the best one I have done in a while...but fiiiirst, a little background. HISTORY Emborough Quarry is a dormant quarry and has...

    Report - Moss Head Mine - Coniston - Feb '20

    The pictures i had seen of the remnants of the aerial ropeway got me really interested in this on however i had no idea quite what a climb it was to the top. We had to chuckle as 2 people in full hiking gear with poles passed us in wellies and waders. I was pleased to be wearing my cheap as...

    Report - Pen-yr-Orsedd Quarry - May 2019

    Going through memory cards from last year I found this little gem, the Pen-yr-Orsedd quarry. Although many of these quarry buildings are slowly returning to nature there's a certain level of photographic derpy-ness about them that I love. Maybe it's the fact that most derelict surface stuff in...

    Report - Pen yr Orsedd Quarry, Nantlle. April 2018

    Visited this slate quarry in Snowdonia during some super sunny Sunday. I'd been hillwalking the day before and spotted the quarry from Nantlle Ridge, the slate tips being hard to miss! . Reading the map, the name Pen yr Orsedd didn't ring any bells, so I tried to research it a bit but found...

    Report - Cowdale Lime Works, Derbyshire - August 2019

    The surrounding buildings definitely look very neo-egyptian and it almost makes the site look like its a themed area out of a closed theme park. There isn't that much other than the buildings and the kilns to see here, but still, a worthwhile explore. You can check out all my photos from this...

    Report - Crich Quarry, Derbyshire (July 2019)

    History shamelessly copied from another report as I know this place has been done multiple times: Crich quarry was a medium sized quarry located in the small Derbyshire town of Crich. Operated at first by The Clay Cross Company, with a metre gauge railway running through which was built by...
