Description"This quarry is an SSSI site managed by Durham Wildlife Trust. The underlying rock is magnesian limestone and specialist plants have colonised the thin soil. It is a breeding ground of the "Durham Argus" butterfly - a local race of the Brown Argus. In 2002 the site became famous when a pair of European Bee Eaters nested there and raised two young."
