This will be the last excursion of our season and is a short evening stroll followed by a drink or a meal.
Meet 6.00 pm at Wheatsheaf car park NY 172 305. Leader Phil Davies. Alternative parking at Embleton Spa Hotel car park, if you intend to go there afterwards, or park down the hill towards the village hall and its car park near the A66 junction.
The quarry, a diorite intrusion in the Kirkstile formation, was worked 1910 – 1950 and is a substantial sight tucked away above Embleton but easily accessible. We will make our way up a track from the Embleton road, spend up to an hour there and then return to the Embleton Spa Hotel or the Wheatsheaf for a meal or a drink.
