The bear pit - Cromford
The bear pit - Cromford
The bear pit was built in 1785 by Arkwright and allowed water to be diverted on Sundays to fill Greyhound Pond while the mills normally supplied were not at work. The pit intercepts Cromford Sough that drains lead mines. It is Listed Grade II. Although the adjoining pigsty has featured on Geograph the bear pit has escaped until now despite being a fascinating and historical structure.
