Part of Old Lindley Quarry
Lindley Quarry is an important geological site, where, to quote from the West Yorkshire Geology Trust's website, “Rough Rock sandstones of the Carboniferous Age (Namurian Epoch) are exposed along a 50 metre abandoned quarry face. The exposure contains a range of sedimentary structures and plant fossils. Towards the eastern end of the exposure a section of exceptionally well preserved sets of cross bedding can be seen. The exposure allows the mineralogy and texture of Rough Rock strata to be studied.” Hoar frost on the grass of the steep hillside meant that I only reached this small quarry face to the east of the main site, and I assume that this is Rough rock sandstone.
