Just looking at this guys and thought it looks a good trip, we are down in Sth Wales in a few weeks and wonder if anybody would have the time to introduce us to the place OR is it not worth a 2 Hr drive ?

Weird because when I search for Brookman's or Brookmans and quarry or mine in the UK and limestone nothing shows up.

Short answer...no! Not for a 2 hours journey, the place is pretty small, can easily get around it in about half that time for which you've spent driving to it!

It's a nice little quarry, don't get me wrong, but for all that effort, look elsewhere...better for a 'filler' when you happen to be in the area anyway Thumb Up
