Bacup: Stone-crushing Circle
This splendid Crushing Circle, which is exhibited outside the museum, was recovered from a quarry at Sourhall, on the moors towards Todmorden. Pushed round by two necessarily strong men, it was used to crush pieces of stone into gravel. In some quarries, versions operated by a horse were used.
