Winter smoke

There has been a quarry at Cauldon Low for years and years - you wouldn't think the land had so much to give. At one time it was limestone, now they want the 'aggregates' (for road-building mostly).

In winter, this lonely part of the moorlands - there can only be a dozen houses or so - is fairly grim, and the quarry's smoking stack is the only sign of life.
Yet, it does have one major attraction: it has one of the most unusual pubs - the Yew Tree - in the county, and possibly the country.
