  1. 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 a steep grassy verge into the site. The places has sat decayed roughly for 10 years now, with the infamous giant pg monkey which hangs over the water just out of reach (no one knows how it got up there, I love the mystery!). A Brief History: There is virtually no information about this place as I browse on the internet, all I know it was definitely used as a gravel quarry, in particular chalk. There are some tunnels (which lead to a dead end) which I presume were used to dig out chalk from the land above. This site also has been known to be used in Doctor Who the 10th anniversary story 1972/1973. Thanks for looking! I appreciate any feedback. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
