Tyne and Wear HER(3440): Blaydon, Blaydon Bank Quarry - Details
Blaydon, Blaydon Bank Quarry
Stone Extraction Site
Blaydonbank Quarry. This quarry produced stone for local building. It is now untidy, overgrown and under-used but its near vertical faces create a dramatic space on the west side of Blaydon Bank South. On the east side of the road the quarry has been reclaimed to form a playing field.
