    USA Abandoned Vulcan Material Quarry - July 2020

    This abandoned quarry located near Louisville is one of my favorite locations to explore even though it has proven to be one of the most annoying places to explore due to Kentucky weather being so hot even in the spring. This location has nearly caused me to have a heat stroke twice and is the...

    France Saint-leu-d'Esserent V1 Quarry, France

    Another massive quarry from a trip to France last year. They don't half make 'em big! Bit o history I managed to glean from French websites: The underground quarry of St-Leu-d'Esserent is located in the department of Oise and originally opened for the extraction of limestone for building...

    Poland Abandonned Quarry - Krakow, Poland | August 2017

    I had spent some time at Krakow with a lovely girl who appeared to still live with her ex-boyfriend. We decided to go on urban exploration together, except right before we went for dinner she got a call from that particular ex-boyfriend that he would kill himself if she would not return home. So...

    Cava di marmo / marble quarry (07/2018)

    I found this former marble quarry in my search for more abandoned places via Google Earth. The quarry already existed in the 13th century. In the 14th to more intensive use in the 17th century, the marble was used for monasteries.     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8...

    The One The Got Away!

    Have any of you missed a site: somewhere that was torn down, redeveloped or closed off just before you had the chance to visit and look around? I had a very quick look at this quarry but it was demolished just before I had planned to go back and climb stuff! :( Full report is here...

    History    This site was originally the home of the largest employer in the area, but now after 20 years, the majority of its towering structures are now empty. There has been a limestone quarry on this site since 1851, which in conjunction with the nearby Shoreham and Steyning Railway...

    Swan Mine - January 2016

    Visited with Conrad + a non member. Well it's the morning after an alcohol-fueled Saturday night...We've just had about 6 hours sleep after hitting Bristol's shittest club, where Conrad lost his marbles and kept buying us jugs of green cocktail and we all ended up super pickled! :P  After...

    Springwell Quarry - Thames Valley Waters - 2014

    Evening All, A post from me tonight of the gorgeous Springwell Quarry located close to home. I have probably visited this place 4-5 times now during different seasons so it's lovely to see it in the different conditions. All my visits start off as a lovely walk down the canal and a quick run up...

    Bethal Quarry - Bradford-on-Avon - March 2015

    After recent events and other posts going up, here is my take on the place Please read underneath BE WARNED - a group of people were physically assaulted at Bethel Quarry on Friday 1st May 2015 by some thug wielding a baseball bat, who accused them of breaking in. Somehow that's unlikely as it...

    Beautyful ruins (UK Tour 2014)

    I visited this place with The Elusive and two other splorers. Abandoned hall and quarry, now in ruins and overgrown. Beautyful place. And big. Very different from what I find back home. A very wet, great fun and very early morning splore :-)...

    Coles Quarry, Backwell March 2014

    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...

    Carbrooke Quarry - 2013

    Slate Quarry North Wales (visited Jan 2013) Nov 2013

    In between renovations we took a trip out to one of the many slate quarries. Maenoffren opened in 1800 and by 1861 was knocking out 400 tons of slate a year. At its peak the quarry employed over 420 people, half of whom worked underground. Like every other quarry demand for welsh slate slowed...

    C Quarry. Jul 2013

    No Reports form me for a while - Just been busy and not got around to any editing. Anyhoo got one edited at last. Going off the calendar in the office and dates on correspondence it looks like this quarry stopped being worked in 2010. I have read that it may just be mothballed and operations...
