Abandoned millstones in Bolehill Quarry
Abandoned millstones in Bolehill Quarry
Just some of the hundreds of unfinished millstones at this location. The millstones were made nearby but left unfinished/unsold when the market for them dried up in the 19C. They were gathered together here when the quarry was used in the early 20C to extract stone for the Derwent Dams.
