Old millstone quarry, Millstone Edge
The quarries here were used to make millstones from as early as 1604 possibly to supply a mill at Holystone. By the 19th century, the quarry was abandoned.
Over 100 whole and broken millstone rough-outs can still be seen, as can the ruins of three workers’ huts LinkExternal link LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
