 Overview
 Description
This is a disused quarry that seems to be infrequently used for dumping grit. There were 6 semi demolished buildings to explore. The main silo building consisted of 6 silos, and was only accessible by climbing a 110ft ladder inside one of the silos.

The stone elevator has had the access stairway removed, so a very long ladder is needed to bridge the 6 meter gap. Extreme caution must be used, as 2 of the 4 silos have had the safety grills removed, and there are 6 ft square holes that lead down into the silo, and your certain death. Also, 2 of these holes are covered by some very flimsy sheet steel, which will give way if stood on.
