Within (or very close to) the SCRCA, there are dozens (perhaps hundreds) of quarries and pits that were either created or enlarged to provide the raw materials needed to build the Settle-Carlisle Railway. After the successful conclusion of the seven year construction project, most of these quarries and pits were abandoned. A small number of these quarries and pits are being included in the SCRCA Project database because they are associated with a key part of construction story.
SCRCA Location Variant: Archaeologal Site - Quarry or Pit
The following examples from the SCRCA Project database illustrate this location variant. Locations are only displayed here if the site or structure has been assessed and if a default image is available. The locations are grouped by 'type' (where appropriate), then sorted by Location ID.
- To view the full Location Summary for one of the sites or structures, click on the relevant location name / description.
