Monument record MDR13547 - Duffield Bank North Quarry (Turpins), Duffield Bank, Duffield
Type and Period (1)
- SANDSTONE QUARRY (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
- None recorded
A Parliamentary Commission in 1839 considered that the 15th century tower of Derby Cathedral was similar to the stone on Duffield Bank. However a city stone trail indicates that the source for the latter was Rigga Lane Quarry, a few steps to the south, on Eaton Bank. St Alkmund's [SMR 19402] in Duffield, of which only the early 14th century tower probably retains original stone work, probably drew stone from Duffield Bank, just across the river, but within the parish. Farey lists a Duffield Bank Quarry in 1811. (1) This is the northern most quarry of a row situated on Duffield Bank on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880. This is probably the site Thomas lists as 'Duffield Bank N (Turpins)' as it is located near a property labelled as 'Turpins'. (2) The 2nd edition Ordnance Survey map of c. 1900 shows this as an 'old quarry'. (3)
