Limestone quarry face, with no evidence for limekilns. Northern part appears to have been excavated only to Peak Forest Tramway trackbed level, but southern part may have been infilled after being excavated to lower levels. At the south end a footpath slants down from Hallsteads to the PFT, with a short projecting length of limestone rubble wall above the quarry face. The PFT trackbed is unwalled on either side for the extent of Quarry 4. There is a low, grassed spoil dump alongside the PFT trackbed. Probably dates from the early 1800s. (1)
