Back in season one we saw our survivors living at a campsite on the outskirts of Atlanta. Amy and Andrea fished there, Shane fought Carol’s husband, Ed, there and we were all witness to the joyful reunion of Rick with his family there.

As many of you know these scenes were filmed at Bellwood Quarry outside of Atlanta proper but still easily within the city limits. This property is owned by the City of Atlanta and is off-limits to sightseers due to safety concerns. However, some adventurous residents of the city still manage to get into this beautiful oasis in an otherwise industrial area. (Note: This area is off-limits for a reason. The blasting which occurred here at one time has left the area unstable and dangerous. Please do not attempt to get into the area on your own.)
We’re lucky to have been contacted by one such resident, Dustin Grau. He has given us permission to share his images of the quarry here on the site. I’ll only pass a few along here as he has many, many more which you can view at one of the links below. This place truly is beautiful and has recently become accessible through a tour with Atlanta Movie Tours.
To see more of Dustin’s photos of not only Bellwood Quarry but also the Goat Farm as well as many other non Walking Dead photos, please visit him at one of these locations:
