Former quarry at Mow Cop
Former quarry at Mow Cop
The area around the top of the hill has been quarried since the Iron Age, initially for the hard gritstone to make millstones, later for stone for road building and quartz for the Staffordshire pottery industry. Quarrying had ceased by the late 20th century and the worked out quarries are now access land managed by the National Trust.
