Report - Temple Quarry, Huddersfield - Sept 2012

Visited with Ravenwing93 & LeedsExplorer.

After a trip out to Sheffield we decided that we would travel north to set up camp on the edge of the Peak District. We woke up to some pretty surprising views in the morning out over the reservoir.


After a quick chat we decided that the next stop on our tour of South & West Yorkshire would be Temple Quarry on the outskirts of Huddersfield. It's not really an amazingly good place but its much better than I thought it would be. The site itself was really weird, inside the cabin of one machine there were newspapers for every day of the past two weeks, despite the fact that the site is well and truly closed. Anyway, less story, more history and pictures.

Named in relation to the nearby “Black Dick’s Templeâ€￾, which can be seen elsewhere, Temple Quarry is situated within the Kirkburton Parish of Huddersfield. The site’s last occupants were the Yorkshire based company, Holgate Aggregates Ltd. Despite being set within a vast expanse of greenbelt land planning permission was granted back in 2008 for the site to be developed in order to create a ‘below-ground waste and recycling system’ – this never happened.








I know it's not brilliant but I've not posted for a while, let alone taken a picture. Thanks!
