Tyne and Wear HER(2571): West Boldon, Quarry - Details
West Boldon, Quarry
Stone Extraction Site
This quarry is marked as ‘Old’ on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey plan, so was out of use by 1895. Since it is not shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan, it must be assumed that quarrying operations began there after 1855.
