Midland Quarry

 

A shallow void at Nuneaton Quarry has been infilled with a 35m high reinforced (12 storey high) earth retaining wall at Tuttle Hill in Nuneaton. The works started in June 2007 and were completed in 14 months involving some four million cubic meters of earthworks at a cost of about £5.5m. The water body in the main void should create an attractive feature for the development at this site.

This is a sustainable solution to two derelict sites in Nuneaton and Rugby as well as a great environmental improvement of the two areas of the County. Stockpiled foundry waste at Willans Green in Rugby and Tuttle Hill in Nuneaton were processed and re-used as infill at Nuneaton Quarry thus regenerating two redundant sites for modern residential and industrial development.
