SH7075 : Brundrit's East Quarry

taken 4 years ago, near to Penmaenmawr, Conwy, Great Britain

Brundrit's East Quarry
Brundrit's East Quarry
The lowest two levels of Brundrit's East Quarry are all that remain of an operation which extended to six levels before the summit of the headland was removed during the intensive operations of the amalgamated Darbishire and Brundrit companies in the twentieth century. A workshop and winding house from the second level can be seen to the right of the image. The East Quarry was the source of crushed stone for the tarmac plant because it was found to absorb the oils better. A geological explanation for that might be found in the highly fractured and more weathered rock in this area, a property which was certainly conducive to sett-making.
