A few weeks ago I went mountain biking near Conway, NH and stumbled on an abandoned quarry, along with a ton of old machinery in various states of disrepair. You can read about that here (my post) or here (an actual history of the quarry).
I went back this weekend with my father-in-law who wanted to see it. We didn’t immediately find the huge lathe, but we stumbled on another old building first:
It’s amazing that place hasn’t been burned to the ground yet.
Then we made our way back over to the incredible piece of machinery that lurks in the forest:
There’s still grease in there:
I really should bring a better camera next time, but I’m more interested in taking the little time I have to go for a bike ride. As it was, I ate up 30 minutes or so exploring this area again, but it’s neat. Definitely won’t by my last time there, for sure. Supposedly there are other things I have yet to find.
