Please do not go to Pitstone Quarry

Thames Valley Police are urging people not to trespass at Pitstone Quarry:

“We are all of course able to partake in exercise and can drive a reasonable distance to do this.

This doesn’t include going to sunbathe and have BBQs at Pitstone quarry.

We have put a few reminders up and will be patrolling this location during the coming week’s warm weather.”

The quarry is in private ownership.  There is no public access or right of way.  The owners continually have to replace fencing that has been destroyed by trespassers, who also leave behind large amounts of litter.  The flooded quarry lake is very deep and very cold which can cause the body to go into shock if you enter the water, there is also submerged machinery etc under the surface of the lake.   If you are not the landowner, nor their employee, you should not enter this land.
