Having a blast at Threshfield Quarry

Quarrying in the Yorkshire Dales National Park has sometimes been controversial, but the industry has improved enormously since the early days of the 20th Century when work started at Threshfield. Audio Trails were commissioned to produce the Threshfield Quarry Heritage (iOS & Android) apps, allowing visitors to explore the changes at the quarry.

Threshfield Quarry closed in 2000 and almost all of the buildings have been cleared from the site. Using this app you can superimpose historical photographs over the present-day scene to see how much it has changed. Short video sequences show what it was like to stand in the quarry when it was working.

Have a blast!

Limestone and limestone products are a vital part of modern life and the app can let you see how the stone is obtained. Collect tokens as you explore the quarry, press the plunger and Have a blast! See what it’s like to release thousands of tons of limestone in the quarry!
