Full Description

The longest of the three upper Dove Holes Dale quarry faces, progressively worked westwards but stopping short of the Bull Ring Henge Monument immediately to the north. The limekilns formerly operating here have been obliterated by spoil dumping from this and other quarries via Samuel Bibbington's Tramway, which runs into Quarry 9 further down the dale. Quarry 9 was begun probably in the late 1790s, and was still active and showed development between 1879 and 1898, as indicated on OS maps. (1)
