Merehead Quarry from the bridle track by the brick works
Merehead Quarry from the bridle track by the brick works
About 1.5 km long and 1km deep, yet completely hidden from those who pass by, except for one or two view points. The mendip quarries go out of their way to be inconspicuous inspite of their size. Most of the stone is carried by a direct rail link.
