Once the Quarrymen Left

Once the Quarrymen Left


In 1969 Dinorwig Quarry fell silent - the quarry was closed and the men sent home for the last time. 50 years later nature has reclaimed what was abandoned and the quarry is once again coming back to life.

This photographic exhibition by Stuart and Gill Hill showcases the diverse range of animals and plants which call Dinorwig quarry their home. Look closely - you may be surprised at what you can see!
