Bishop Middleham Quarry (disused)
This quarry is an SSSI site managed by Durham Wildlife Trust. The underlying rock is magnesian limestone and specialist plants have colonised the thin soil.
It is a breeding ground of the "Durham Argus" butterfly - a local race of the Brown Argus. In 2002 the site became famous when a pair of European Bee Eaters nested there and raised two young.
