After we'd finished in Tone Mills and had a half hearted attempt at Tonedale which was thwarted by too many residents selfishly enjoying the beautiful weather me and Landie/Punto Man started heading home via a site I'd never seen too much of near Bristol. Coles Quarry was a Cemex site at one point and closed a good few years ago - it's sort of like a miniature version of Fullers Earth in some ways and was a good chilled wander in lovely sunny weather. We met a nice old lady walking her Collie and small adopted Terrier-type dog, who she told us had been brought back from Cyprus with them, around the site - her house/garden backs onto the main drive into the quarry site and she's perfectly OK with people being in/around the buildings, as in her own words it's 'nothing to do with her'! Anyway we had a nice chat and went our separate ways. I had a sudden attack of the jelly legs after going across this And the quarry itself.
