Harehope Quarry Project

Harehope Quarry Project

Frosterley, Bishop Auckland, DL13 2SG

The Harehope Quarry Project is based in a former limestone quarry near the village of Frosterley in County Durham. It’s location within the North Pennines AONB means it benefits from fantastic dark skies and as such makes for a great venue for ad-hoc stargazing events.


Harehope Quarry Project is a private location and is only accessible out of normal hours for stargazing by prior arrangement or when public events are scheduled.
