Newbold Quarry – as it used to be!

The images date from 2010 to 2013 and give some views of sections of the quarry and a little taste of the flora and fauna present. The main thing to notice is how much less scrub and tree growth was present. The primary wildlife benefit of the quarry is in supporting the growth of wildflowers that are at home in the very poor soil of the spoil banks. To that end, we have to restore more of the open spaces that we have lost over the last decade.
