Tyne and Wear HER(5710): Jesmond Dene, Blackberry Crag (quarry) - Details
Jesmond Dene, Blackberry Crag (quarry)
Former sandstone quarry later used by Armstrong as a Chinese garden - some bamboo plants still survive. An arch has been built into the quarry edge and then packed with stones, to bridge a gap in the rock. Armstrong's original stone edged path survives through this area (in other parts of the Dene the paths have been replaced by tarmac).
