    Default buxton lime industries 05/11


    I saw the site as I drove down the A6
    to really explore the site it would be worth taking sensible footwear as after climbing up 20 foot I realized that my trainers would not survive climbing back down

    if you go looking for the Lime works head out of buxton down the A6 towards matlock and the site is about a mile down the road on the right

    Good pictures. We went up there years ago but without a camera. At the top, you can get into a sort-of manmade cave between the butresses. There are openings on each side of it, with rusted carts - presumably for the limestone.

    I love seeing photos of this site. Fab pics, Paul...they really do it justice. Cheers. :)
