Having a blast at Threshfield Quarry

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.
