Hillhead Quarry beyond rough pasture.
Hillhead Quarry beyond rough pasture.
The area in the foreground is often grazed by sheep. On occasion, with permission of the landowner, the site is used for organised motorcycle trials riding, hence the collection of motor vehicles. It is ideal for this purpose with its many rocky limestone outcrops, as seen in the middle distance, presenting the kind of challenge relished by the competitors.
