Horseshoe Quarry Layout

Approaches:

The quarry is situated about 2km up the A623 from Stoney Middleton. Follow the road and 300m after a sharp right-hand bend will be seen a quarry track leading off to the right with a lay-by on the left-hand side of the road 100m further on. Park here or on the opposite side of the road. Go back down the road and follow the track into the quarry.

Layout:

On entering the quarry the first walls seen at the back of the quarry are clearly recognized by a cave at 10m and a compact wall extending leftwards. 20m left of the cave is the first area (Androids Area) identified by a long corner line. The best area, the Main Wall, lies 70m to the left and is obvious by name. The walls extend beyond this for some distance and then form a series of slabs on the back wall. On the left-hand side of this and facing towards the main wall are a yellowish wall (Heart to heart Wall) and a bay (Guoranga Bay). Above the Main Wall lies the recently developed Upper Tier.
