Old Quarry by Huddersfield Road, Elland
Old Quarry by Huddersfield Road, Elland
Sited near the former Storth Brick Works, this exposure of the Pennine Lower Coal Measures shows the Elland Flags (top), the Mudstones and siltstones off the PLCM, then the 80yd Rock overlaying the Mudstones, Siltstones and Sandstones of the PLCM. Typical west-facing escarpment with the strata dipping to the east.
An earth bund has been contacted alongside the highway (Elland By-pass) to protect the road from falling rock. The public footpath, which is shown run-ing alongside the highway fence on the east side, has been diverted through the highway boundary fence with steel 'kissing gates'.
