Limestone quarry face in two sections, continuing the line of Quarry 4 (SMR29960) southwards. Floor mostly at Peak Forest Tramway level, but locally excavated downwards, then spoil-filled. Shorter northern section has overhang in northwest corner, with tumbled rubble wall feature below; purpose unknown. Longer southern section appears to have been worked below PFT level. Southern extremity buried under modern spoil dumping, with recent gardens encroaching on former quarry face line. No evidence of limekilns. Quarry probably established in early 1800s. (1)
