Dene Quarry
Dene Quarry
The massive Dene Quarry between Middleton and Cromford. Hard to do it justice on a little picture like this, but over half of this map square has been taken away.
You can just see one of those huge quarry trucks extreme right which gives some idea of scale
The map below doesn't show the full extent of what is there now. The dog leg footpath now is on the quarry edge.
