Whately Quarry
Castle Hill

Whatley Quarry is situated three miles west of Frome in Somerset.

From the M5, leave at junction 23, and take the A39 towards Glastonbury. After roughly 12.5 miles, at the island junction with the A361/A39, take the 3rd exit, following the A361 towards Frome. Approx 2 miles after passing the entrance to the huge Mendip quarry, the road bends to the right. At this point, turn left into a un-named road and proceed along for a couple of miles, until the road passes the entrance to Whatley depot and the quarry. At this point, on road parking isn't possible, but the pavement on the bridge is wide enough to fit a couple of vehicles, so leaving the car here shouldn't be a problem. The shunter can be seen by looking over the wall, situated on the opposite side to the pavement.

Note: For views into the depot, it would be a good idea to take something to stand on, as the wall on the bridge is quite high in places.

Current Allocation:

08650 - Mendip Rail blue
08947 - Mendip Rail blue
