Quarry line is a three kilometer walking trail between Höör mill and Stantorp quarry. Runs along the disused narrow gauge decauvillejärnvägen. "Criminal career" (brottets bana) in the vernacular.

"Criminal career" was built in 1905 to transport stone from quarries at Stantorp to Höörs station. Was closed down in 1910 when also the quarry was closed down. In the quarries was millstone and stone to Lund Cathedral broken. The days of glory were at 17-1800 centuries.

Parks at Höörs mill. A pond and water turbine. In summer, a garden cafe. Walking on the trail along the brook Höörsån to the railway. On the way pass Bosse Tomb, will visit it on the way back. On the footpath along railway, a bit of a track reminiscent of the path of crime. Onto a gravel road, past a grove of trees and a few houses. Millstone Signs show the way. A short stretch of road.

Over a stile to pasture. Along the stone wall. In a birch is hanging a birdhouse. Between the moss-covered stone walls. A remnant of the railway tracks leaning against a stone wall. Winter sun shines weakly through the clouds. Coming up to Stantorp quarries.

Since my last visit (2010) are all the forests gone. Uprooted trees, stumps, branches and fallen tree trunks. Going into the quarry, rathersomething otherwise impassable. Steep rock walls. Remains of a building. Wet. Going out for lunch at a stump.

Returning to Höör. Going over Höörsån for a visit at Bosse Tomb. One of the many deep pits of quarrying. Here as elsewhere in Stenskogen was millstones carved. Down in the pit is a millstone.

Driving home on the small roads. Outside Kungshult is Santa. Eat sausage at the kiosk in Örtofta.
