Playtime at the quarry.

Post by totherone »

I wonder if anyone remembers the quarry a few hundred yards behind "The Myrtle Tavern"on Parkside Road(Meanwood),you had to walk along a path which had Meanwwod Cricket Club to your right and Sykes Farm to your left,we as kids spent many hours in the sixties/seventies playing there,skimming this and throwing that.

Is this the end of the story ...or the beginning of a legend?

Wow at least 5 surrounding or not far from Myrtle Square. The cricket field is roughly where FP and Road in Parkside Road are so I'd guess the OP is referring to the only named, Meanwood, quarry which appears to be disused already on the map.
