Mountsorrel - the largest granite quarry in Europe
Mountsorrel station took some finding. I imagined it down in the valley somewhere near the River Soar, but it was a long way from the village and up a hill.
On the way I passed Mountsorrel Quarry, the largest granite quarry in Europe. There turned out to be a public footpath heading off into it, with the result that I was able to take these photographs.
The vehicles reminded me of Tonka Toys or an episode of Thunderbirds.
