A quarry is a place where sand, stone, metal, marble, rock and gravel is excavated.
Quarries are usually very dusty and noisy places.
The pyramids in Egypt were built from stones cut out of nearby quarries.
Many quarries will become lakes when they are abandoned.
It is not safe to swim in abandoned quarries that have filled with water, as they are usually very deep.
Have you ever visited a quarry?
