Harehope Quarry

Thank you for volunteering!

IMG_1219We had a really successful volunteer day last Saturday.  We did the usual maintenance that is always required this time of year – some of the wooden planks on the balcony were replaced, a shed roof was re-felted, the Frosterley Marble slabs were varnished, ongoing repairs were made to ponds and fencing and bird boxes were made and put up.  More momentous was the removal of the bird hide at the quarry pond, which suffers every time pond level rise after rain.  This was a big development as it allows us to start improving some of the infrastructure on site and future-proofing it for the more extreme weather we are experiencing as result of climate change.
