Gravel quarry traffic at Hedgeley
Just looking back over a few photos that I took in mid August of this year on a quick walk around the Hedgeley Lakes.
Even though there’s a gravel quarry at Hedgeley I’m typically blissfully unaware of its existence living at Powburn as I do. Even walking around the lakes you would not necessarily be aware that gravel extraction was taking place. There is, of course, the sound of the mechanical ‘sieve’ that presumably is separating the gravel by size. However, the sound is fairly well dampened by the river bank, trees and hedgerows – at least from the lakes side – that it doesn’t demand your attention, and you can happily enjoy a peaceful walk.
