Atmospheric is the word we're going to use to describe Hodge Close Quarry, and judging by the photos it's clear to see why! It looks like it should be in a horror movie, with the skull visible in the rising water.

A do-able walk from Coniston, at around 1 hour 15 minutes, but it gets quite steep near the quarry. But it is looks amazing. – Google Review

This hidden gem was used in the Netflix series The Witcher (season 2 episode 3 to be precise) which also used the very scary image of the skull!
