York Quarry

We took the dogs for a walk around York Quarry which is where Bernie works. It's located in Whakatu - only ten minutes drive from home.

After we went through the gate, we locked it behind us and parked the truck round the corner. And, then we walked up the road and did a circuit around the quarry.

We walked up the road and turned left at the first t-intersection. This was obviously rabbit territory. Although we didn't spot any the dogs could smell their scent.

At the top bench of the quarry we saw where trucks go to pick up larger size aggregates (screened rock). This spot is also host to a fantastic view.

Then we walked down a steep 4x4 track into the pit, where the crushing of aggregates happens.
