Takes the train to Malmö.
Bus to Limhamn's limestone quarry.
Today's 150th anniversary and guided tours down the quarry.
It is usually closed to the public.
Abandoned and now a nature reserve to be developed for itself.
One had to book a place.
All places ended in half an hour.
Retrieving our booked tickets.
There is an exhibition of the history of the quarry.
Had hoped for geological findings, but nothing.
A guide tells about the mistletoe that grows wild and is fenced as protection.
Our trip begins with the road down the quarry.
The limestone was formed by small sea-life animals, bryozos, 60 million years ago.
They had a skeleton of lime.
The guide tells of the quarry, we are looking for fossils.
At the bottom is a cement artwork, "Imperfect Geometry for a Concrete Quarry"
By Mike Nelson. 3500 cement block.
Cement is made of lime.
A small lake.
Water is pumped away, otherwise the entire quarry would be under water.
A birch dungeon.
Rail and carriage from the track that transported the lime from the quarry.
House with graffiti.
Had unique graffiti from 2006, now overlaid with newer ones.
The middle part of the quarry resembles a steppe landscape.
Large building for crushing the lime.
Now with graffiti and used for rave party.
Outside a slope of loose lime.
In the eastern a wetland.
There are frogs here.
Tastes on the sea towers, sour.
Invasive so one tries to keep it away.
A lot of clematis.
On the east wall there is a wave, remains of a colony with bryozos.
Going up to the northeast.
Our guide tells us nothing about the mistletoe.
