    1. The History The Peak Forest Canal Company built the Peak Forest Tramway between 1794 and 1796, they cut into a bed of gritstone by the hamlet of Lower Crist. As the stone had good non-slip properties, they decided to open a quarry there. The gritstone bed extended south of the main line of the tramway at Lower Crist and a branch line was made into it. Another deposit adjoining the nearby hamlet of Barren Clough was also discovered. They purchased the land but it too another 56 years before...

    1. The History Halldale quarry is a former limestone quarry situated south-west of Matlock off Snitterton Lane. It was an important hard limestone abstraction source that served the construction industry throughout the Dales, South Yorkshire and Midlands providing both block stone and aggregate. Formed from a relatively level base section cut into a hillside, topographically, so that the Quarry forms a bowl of land, operations at the quarry creased around 25 years ago. The quarry is vast and...

    Sad that the cretins think that this is a suitable place to dump rotting vehicles. In populating these places a great number of Allied Troops were killed or maimed and that should never be forgotten!

    Having known about this place for quite a few years and taking me an embarrassingly long time to find, despite the obvious name, I finally found myself at All Saints Church. After thinking twice after finding a rather live wasp nest, we made our way inside. Unfortunately most of the features have long gone, namely the seats, leaving only decaying floors and pigeon droppings. A short, yet certainly sweet, little explore that took an equally embarrassing amount of time wondering why the...

    Itís noticeable, I havenít explored much the last few years so with the screw it attitude I head over to what I thought had long gone. With a few baffled people telling me otherwise, over to POW 116 we went! After parking up and walking to the nearest easy entry point we were surprised to find a family showing their kids around the site and a few FPV drones zipping around the site. The site is very much in ruins which was somewhat to be expected, but the highlight for myself being some...

    Returning from a nearby site, knowing this place was only 10 mins away, I thought it would be rude not to check it out. Not knowing if it was even going to be open, we were pleasantly surprised. Having found somewhere to park and a good few minutes walk not knowing what to expect, we were surprised to find the ROC post wide open! The surprise didnít stop there either, after climbing through the hatch and down the entrance shaft was one of the most filled ROC post I had ever seen....

    Cheers Sausage - The pump is a bog standard rotary lift pump and I suspect it has been modified into a dosing pump. Ground water in cemeteries can become a bit contaminated and I think this pump was used to dose 'scent' or disinfectant into water being pumped out of the diggings. There again the tin can may be just a means of holding water to keep the pump primed as the 'waste water' was completely removed from the diggings. Obviously hand made to do a needed/vital job.

    Cold War? Is it a museum? I'm surprised there's no rust on anything. The large engines are also on separate mounting pads to isolate vibration. It's a fascinating place.

    Lovely building that. Mind you, that car parking is just shocking! The handle thingy is a pump - you see them at the base of access shafts into ROC posts and fixed to the wall. I've no idea why it's attached to bracketry and tin plate. Dirus will come along and tell us the name of those pumps (My mind fails me!).
