    Default Endon Quarry, Macclesfield August 2017


    First off I'm only assuming that this is a disused part of the still very much active Endon Quarry situated just up the road from this - the only reference I can find to it online is concerning the installation of a mobile telephone mast on the entrance road leading into it which refers to it as the Endon Quarry.



    I found this by accident after a bout of random map searching and it's another I don't believe has been covered before. It looks to have been disused for some time as everything is nicely rusty. There are several large excavators and some bits of quarry machinery left as well as a couple of large sheds one of which houses five huge excavator engines. It's a great peaceful tromp around if you're in the area and like this sort of thing.
