Land Restoration at Mere Farm Quarry

Home » Newsroom » Land Restoration Mere Farm Quarry

Last week, the restoration of the former sandpit at Mere Farm Quarry began with the earthworks on the site nearest to Alderley Road.

All the quarry gear has been removed and the 'soon to be' lakes look like they are beginning to fill up.

The line of the current right of way across the sandpit will be maintained and it will have a lake on either side, with a bird sanctuary island on the northern lake.

As you can see, things are beginning to take shape. The initial works should take approximately nine weeks from today (27th April, 2015)
