    Default Clee hill Quarry nr Dhustone sep 11 part one (pic heavy)


    I know Clee Hill quarrys beens done a few times in the past so I wont bother with any of the history
    , but I was in the area and had an hour to kill so went off and tried my new samsung camera out






    views from the top bench of the quarry











    some views of the storage hoppers at the one end of the site


    and its my first ever explore where ive found a dead sheep






    wasnt that keen on the foundations of this huge lump of concrete





    the insides of building which im trying to work out what it was used for

    Urbexus industrialis, Loving it, that conrete looks well dodgy.
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Most of the remains are from the stone crushing plant - the local dhustone is a type of Dolerite which is ideal for road chippings
