    Default Crich quarry..Derbyshire


    I have been wanting to visit here for a while but hearing it was being used by the museum next door I was not sure.so whilst me and man gone wrong were in the area we decided to go look.was really pleased to see it was not being used and a lovely walk in.i love the big aggregate sorter here.and we had fun climbing all over it whilst the museum trams going right past.we even got a few waves..the quarry land was bought in 1791 for mining the limestone out.then transported down the hill to the butterly company to use in there ironworks.the quarry and the kilns were used by butterly till 1937.it was later used by aggregate companies till it closed about eight years ago.











    Chains and breaker for breaking down the aggregates

















































































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    The machinery is very ancient comparing with the machinery at your other locations, nice shots.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Nice the photos, the first shot it great. Looks like an ideal climbing location.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.
