Rock face at Bishop Middleham Quarry
Rock face at Bishop Middleham Quarry
There are quarries, active and disused, all over this area of County Durham, magnesian limestone being the main rock to be extracted. This quarry is disused and is now in the care of Durham Wildlife Trust as a nature reserve. It's of special scientific interest due to the thin, poor limestone soils. Bee eaters bred there in 2002: we saw them!
