SO5876 : Dhustone quarry

taken 12 years ago, near to Cleehill, Shropshire, Great Britain

Dhustone quarry
Dhustone quarry
Quarry now being filled in. Stone is still quarried here, but the dhustone dolerite polishes to easily to be any good as modern roadstone. It is (after 300 odd million years) remelted and spun into rockwool. (According to someone met at an orienteering event up there)
Clee Hill is scarred by many quarries, but has yet to host Dr Who - an ideal location.
