Vandicourt Quarry is a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The rocks here are limestones which were formed in a shallow tropical sea, known as the Zechstein Sea, about 255 million years ago during the Permian Period. The Zechstein Sea extended from eastern England across northern Europe.



During the second world war the tunnels beneath the quarry were used by local people as air raid shelters.


After boredom struck I headed out to have a look around the tunnels, I managed to kill half hour in here but in reality if I didn't have the camera it would of only took me a minute to walk around the full shelter.
