QUARRY below MINNINGLOW - SK206576
The quarry was developed to provide stone during the construction of the CHPR Cromford and High Peak railway. It is located at the northern end of the embankment below Minniglow so presumably provided the raw material for this. Although this is a large embankment there is an even larger one just a short distance away (Gotham curve).
At the southern end of the embankment is a limekiln which could also have been installed for the same reasons.
Also at the southern end of the embankment is a brick kiln.
