Wirksworth I

Standing Stone / Menhir


Local rumour has it that after 7 years of slumber the Middle Peak Quarry is about to be reworked and even better..... extended. Unfortuantely the stone and, to a much lesser extent, the narrow road that passes it by are likely to be amongst the casualities. An alternative road/route already exists and well the just a stone to a lot of folk living in Wirksworth, that is if they know it's there at all.

So along with the extensions to the quarries around Stanton and the recently approved plans to rework and extend the rakes on Longstone Edge it would appear that the Peak is all out to invert itself....

The quarry still slumbers and the latest rumour is it will be turned into a housing estate so think the threat has passed for now. Posted by davkt
