This photo shows a long abandoned millstone. Over the years, the gritstone edges in Derbyshire have been an important source of stone for such uses as millstones and gateposts. The bulk of the quarrying took place along the hilltops above Hathersage, but the quarry at Millstone Edge was the biggest of them all. Work here began in medieval times and continued through to about one hundred years ago.
There is plenty of evidence of the workings, both in the remains left behind and on the rockface itself.
These are drill holes for the placing of the explosive charges used to blast away the rock face.
Now, it is a great place for climbing - but not for beginners. The routes here are hard!
