Northern hemisphere's longest zip wire 700ft above the ground.

The exhilarating ride, which allows thrill-seekers to soar across the Quarry at a height of 700 feet, opened to the public on Saturday. The zip-wire layout crosses directly above the quarry lake, travelling at speeds of around 80mph, and on a clear day will offer views.

Riders will be driven up to the top of the quarry, which was 1,200ft deep, in an ex-military vehicle for a tour of the region and a taste of its industrial history before being given a weather-proof suit, helmets and goggles for the ride.
