Visited with @Polo and a non-member

Brief History:

The Tytherington Stone Company opened these quarries in 1880 and a rail link was built in 1888. Grovesend Quarry, the central one, was opened in 1902 due to the demand for stone to build the Royal Edward Dock at Avonmouth, and weekly output of 850 to 895 tons was taken by rail directly to Avonmouth. By 1990 weekly output was about 30,000 tons.

This was a lovely explore, there was no sign of any security and access to most of the buildings as well as the site itself was fairly easy. The older buildings are in great condition considering the site has been mothballed for quite some time.

As Mobutu said, I/we found this place to be really enjoyable. I'd like to thank @Lenston for bringing this site back to my attention with his reports - I'm glad to have finally made the short journey over to the other side of the river for it! I had actually forgotten about Tytherington for a while after thinking about visiting earlier last year but, as you could probably guess by the photos, I don't think we could've picked a better day in terms of the weather. Here are a few of my photos from our visit:

Just two others unfortunately, my flash was malfunctioning so I haven't got any proper interiors. Polo may have a few though.
