SK3160 : A stone trough

taken 3 years ago, near to Tansley, Derbyshire, Great Britain

A stone trough
A stone trough
This trough - carved out of a single lump of stone is said to be a bleaching or dyeing pit. It is about 5 feet across and a similar distance deep. Thus the original lump of stone must have taken some effort to put it here before the internal combustion or steam engines became available. It would then have been hollowed out in situ.
