Scotgate Ash Sandstone Quarry (United Kingdom)


Mainly worked between 1871 and 1920 this was one of the largest quarries in Yorkshire. Stone was also mined underground via galleries and shafts. No access to any remaining underground workings is immediately obvious.

A full account can be found in the article "The stone mines of Nidderdale - Part 1, Pateley Bridge" by Geoff Blacker in British Mining No. 55.
