Many thanks to Tony Wood from the Peak District Mines Historical Society for leading a walk for our supporters today.
The heritage walk, which focused on the quarries at Stanton Moor, was inspired by the research that DHBT volunteer, Paul, has been undertaking - looking at where the stone to build Wingfield Station came from.
The group met at Birchover and took a circular route that encompassed some of the industrial and archaeological heritage of the area.
This included the abandoned millstones and the Nine Ladies Bronze Age stone circle. The stone circle, and it’s associated King Stone, are composed of the local Ashover Grit sandstone.
