Two limestone quarry faces separated by a grassed mound. North face much smaller and terraced above Peak Forest Tramway trackbed level, with relatively thin beds. Southern face more extensive, working thicker beds and has been worked below PFT level at three working 'benches'. It appears that there has been extensive quarrying below PFT level within the quarry, which was subsequently infilled with spoil. No evidence of limekilns. Probably dates from early 1800s. (1)
