Trowbarrow Quarry

Trowbarrow Quarry nature reserve is located in Silverdale, Lancashire.

This piece of land was once a limestone quarry up until it ceased functioning in 1959 and it wasn’t until 1997 that Trowbarrow became a nature reserve for a variety of wildlife and plants.

The trail to the quarry starts from Storrs Lane and you have to follow the sign posts as there are many other walking routes that divert along the path.

This area has woodland, wildlife and a nice walk around the quarry but don’t walk too close to the edge as people do rock climb here and bits of rocks do fall from the top.

This massive stone is known as the “shelter stone,” it was once used by the quarry men to shelter behind when they were blasting. These days it’s used by rock climbers.

Blessed Be )O(
