quarried. It is hard to believe just how large this crater is. How many generations of workers walked each day up to the quarry, working long days in cold conditions.
We heard some large bangs as they blasted for more stone ....to be slate to be used for roofing slate, work tops and all manner of things these days. We glanced down into this vast hole where men and vehicles looked like the size of ants, from the footpath behind the fence.
"Danger Quarry " many sign posts warned people of the Quarry.
It was here that I picked up the stone with the orange stripes and a little curled piece of fern and the tag blown into the heather. I did not have a bag so I carefully wrapped the fern in a new folded tissue from my pocket. I saw different coloured toadstools but as I doubted I would manage to get them home in one piece, I left them to grow. My collection already consisted of the pieces of china and two red berries.
Thank you for your comments and Welcome to the new followers too. The snow has arrived here, just going to start a new drawing and I will show you some snow photographs next time I see you.
