Bishop's Quarry
Bishop's Quarry
The Bishop's Quarry has two working faces, this is the southern-facing one. The Carboniferous (Asbian to Brigantian) Limestone belonging to the Cefn Mawr Formation displays regular cycles of deposition reflecting shallowing and deepening of the contemporary sea. Shallow interludes have more clay and mud, and are eroded back in this outcrop. Waste heaps cover the area which has been worked out during historic production.
