Thornley (part 4)

Mains water came late to the village and there are still three dry, but very well preserved glazed brick wells in the village, opposite the War Memorial, on the Village Green (see picture above) and beside Broom Foot. There is also an open pipe which still delivers cold spring water situated just beside the Cottage (see picture below), at the east end of the Village Green

There are two disused quarries in Thornley, both on land that is now privately owned though a permissive footpath runs through the western Cleugh Quarry (see picture left). Beware of stones falling from the unstable face and the deep pool of water lying in the quarry bottom.

There are a number of moderately easy and more difficult walks around and through Thornley, and Collier Wood picnic area, just off the A68 offers plenty of parking space.
