SW9573 : The Camel Quarry

near to Edmonton, Cornwall, Great Britain

The Camel Quarry
The Camel Quarry
The desolate landscape of the Camel Quarry with the Camel Trail passing through it. In the 17th and 18th centuries this was a hive of activity, one million slates a year being produced at times, all of them shipped out from the quays which once lined the river's edge (see SW9474).
