After recent events and other posts going up, here is my take on the place

Please read underneath from OTs report

BE WARNED - a group of people were physically assaulted at Bethel Quarry on Friday 1st May 2015 by some thug wielding a baseball bat, who accused them of breaking in. Somehow that's unlikely as it has been open for months. It's probably still open....

History

A fairly small (120,000 square feet total area), single adit entrance Bath stone quarry. The Bethel quarries were extensively worked by Messrs. Rogers according to the Bradford on Avon Gazetteer of 1868. It was later requisitioned in 1939 by the War Department and used for Royal Naval storage after some strengthening work. It was later used by Oakfield Farm Products as a mushroom farm and before that had been used by Heinz to grow mushrooms for its mushroom soup. Mushroom production stopped in September 2010 and it was offered for sale in April 2011 as having potential for underground storage. The Estate Agent details reported a "large and historic stone quarry extending to very approximately 10 acres with mains power, water and sewerage connected. The quarry ceased to be mined for stone at the end of the 19th Century but was latterly been used for the farming of mushrooms, though for some months has been disused.

Some nice shots there mate, I never took any pictures of the rubber gloves hanging up like some freaky black magic ritual.
