Shapfell Quarry (Tata Steel)

Working with Cumbria GeoConservation and Tata Steel we produced two panels to help interpret the geology, history and restoration of this disused limestone quarry, which was once an important source of limestone to make lime for UK steelmaking. Tata Steel, which still operates the nearby limeworks, is restoring the quarry by creating wildlife habitats and farmland, as well as preserving geological features and improving access for the public.
