Site visit to Fairy Cave / by Tessa Farmer

If ever there was a physical entrance into fairyland I think it may well be found here:

This is Fairy Cave Quarry in Somerset: a disused and well hidden, very strange place where I will install newly commissioned work in the autumn. The project is Step in Stone  and will take place over the summer and autumn of 2015 across three quarries in the Mendip Hills. Fiona Campbell, the organiser, very kindly ferried me around from site to site and we also visited Somerset Earth Science Centre who will be involved. I am now extremely excited about fossils thanks to the enthusiastic manager Gill Odolphie. I returned home happy, with a handbag full of rocks.
