DERBYSHIRE HERITAGE Derbyshire Peak District - higger-tor


The chapel like building is close by Roystone Grange Hall remains and is a 19th century building and was originally a pump house. A large water-cooled engine pumped compressed air through cast iron pipes to drive the rock drills in the quarries that developed along the Cromford and High Peak Railway line, now the High Peak Trail.

Nearby is also the ancient Roystone Grange farmstead site.
