Cloford Quarry

Cloford Quarry

Cloford Quarry is a 39.92 hectare geological Site of Special Scientific Interest near Holwell on the Mendip Hills in Somerset, notified in 1994.

It is a Geological Conservation Review site important for the exposures of sediments of Triassic and Jurassic age which occur in major fissures within the Carboniferous Limestone. No other site in Britain shows such a variety and abundance of sediment-infilled fissures of this age.

Cloford Quarry was the main location used for the planet Lakertya in the Doctor Who story “Time and the Rani”. Shots filmed here include the exterior of the Rani’s laboratory.
