When:  8 Nov 2013  19.30 – 21.00 pm.
Where:  Hollybush Quarry, Neston.
Who:    Darren T, H Clark and Ed Waters.

Hollybush Quarry is a small bathstone quarry near Neston. It was only worked for two years and closed in 1902 due to the poor quality stone it produced. It comprises of a slope shaft leading too two classically fashioned passageways with a few workings leading virtually nowhere. There is a trial shaft that was sunk on the left side of one passage.
Its a small mine but has some graffiti and a few quarrymens relics to find scattered about however the locals are not very friendly towards explorers.
