Quarry, Bringewood
Quarry, Bringewood
Much of the rock on the Ludlow Anticline is unsuitable for building, reverting rapidly to mud on contact with the weather. However the core of the hills are resistant limestones and there are numerous quarries, mostly very small. They are prized as geological sites, with a fine collection of Silurian fossils.
