Monument record MDR14155 - Dane Head Quarries, Axe Edge Moor, Hartington Upper Quarter
Type and Period (1)
- SANDSTONE QUARRY (Georgian to Victorian - 1800 AD to 1900 AD)
- None recorded
Dane Head Quarry was included in a study into the potential to re-establish the roofing slate industry of the South Pennine region. This may be Farey's Wincle Chapel (Dane Head and Blackclough) although he may have included Dane Bower and Reeve Edge within this reference in 1811. Wincle chapel is 8km south west along the Dane Valley. Dane Head Quarry is two small depressions, one with thickly cleaved sandstone outcrops. The geology is near the base of the Rough Rock. (1) There are Quarries and an Old Quarry situated either side a road crossing Axe Edge Moor shown on the 1st edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880. (2) The 3rd edition shows all the quarries in this area as 'Old'. (3) Modern maps show there are still some extant earthworks. (4)
